Germany has about a hundred of gigawatts of installed-capacity of wind/solar enough to replace hard coal or lignite coal, but even so they will have to replace coal by natural gas(methane(CH₄): 70x worse than CO₂) to fake intermittent renewables are reducing emissions.

Wind and solar(bird-choppers/landscape-destroyers) are a trillion-dollar fiasco in the fight against Climate Change.
Carbon-free nuclear has done much more with much less money, in much less time and with much less ecological impacts.
