RWE: barking up the wrong tree

RWE [RWE.F], one of Germany's leading energy utilities, believes that it can help the country meet its tough carbon-emissions targets by building "next-generation" lignite-fired power stations.

European emissions trading: German exemptions will undermine entire scheme

Berlin is proposing to give unlimited carbon emission permits to power stations built after 2008 for their first 14 years of operation. While this will provide a clear investment signal to German utilities, and make nuclear phase-out more palatable, it is potentially ruinous for Europe's beleaguered emissions trading scheme.
