This sounds misleading.

Perhaps it would be illuminating to see the whole spectrum of where German electricity is derived from.

I believe I read that Ms. Merkel has committed Germany to significantly increase its use of Russian natural gas in the future. Perhaps that why they are winding-down their nuclear and coal options.
