Germany should fully phase out coal by 2038 - commission

BERLIN, Jan 26 (Reuters) - Germany should shut down its last coal-fired power plant by 2038 at the latest, a government-appointed commission said early on Saturday as part of a roadmap laying out an accelerated phase out of the polluting fuel.

Following months of negotiations, the proposals of the 31-member committee, also known as the coal commission, will likely be turned into law by the government. (Reporting by Markus Wacket Writing by Paul Carrel Editing by Caroline Copley)
