Contrary to claims made by pro-nuclear advocates, germany is managing its nuclear shutdown quite well.
Amory Lovins explains why in an article which appeared in Forbes
Before the March 2011 Fukushima disaster, both Germany and Japan were nearly 30% nuclear-powÂered. In the next four months, Germany restored, and sped up by a year, the nuclear phaseout schedule originally agreed with industry in 2001â€“02. With the concurrence of all political parties, 41% of Germanyâ€™s nuclear power capacityâ€”eight units of 17, including five similar to those at Fukushima and seven from the 1970sâ€”got promptly shut down, with the rest to follow during 2015â€“22.
[…] the output lost when those eight reactors closed in 2011 was entirely replaced in the same yearâ€”59% by the 2011 growth of renewables, 6% by more-efficient use, and 36% by temporarily reduced electricity exports. Through 2012, Germanyâ€™s loss of 2010 nuclear output was 94% offset by renewable growth; through 2013, 108%. At this rate, renewable growth would replace Germanyâ€™s entire pre-Fukushima nuclear output by 2016.
