According to the artcle:
-8 nuclear plants closed;
-Germany accounts for 4 billion kWh of surplus energy, just in the first 6 months of 2011;
-It looks like Germany import a lot of nuclear energy from France and the Czech republic, but that's mainly because Germany is an energy transit country, that's linked to 9 other countries that it supplies energy to.

Because of a few nuclear accidents in Germany, due to some fscking around, Sweden has requiested Germany for some energy reform. It appears that that's what all this green energy is all about.
