Groene was upset by the statement of the Flemish Minister of Environment and Energy, Zuhal Demir, on Radio 1, this morning. “Our country’s energy policy is miserable,” said the N-VA minister there.

That is, while we need a Flemish minister involved in this energy transition. In the end we can only do this together.
Gas stations files must go fast

You have clearly described our country’s energy policy as “the cunt”. “It’s not going well. Regardless of all the party dogmas and ideology, let’s hit the reset button and see the energy policy we need. We must start from three principles: affordability, adequate energy and environmental impact. From Flanders we are investing heavily in Wind power, solar power, thermal grids. And we will continue to do so. But we also have to look at what we must do next: gas-fired power plants, nuclear power…?’
Not done with 3M

We’re not quite done with 3M yet.”
