German monthly power bills have fallen. Right now, there is no region of the US where power bills would be lower than in Germany.
The UK government recently said Britain could reach a level of solar power that would generate 4% of its electricity.
Tomorrow, a new 800 MW hard coal plant will go into operation in Hamburg, Germany.
Without renewables, the German phase-out of nuclear that (re-)started in 2011 would have been much more costly, especially for industrial consumers.
It seemed that German Industry Minister had firmly put his foot down and opposed the beginnings of a coal phaseout, but perhaps not so.
The move to battery storage is inevitable, and enables the incorporation of much larger amounts of intermittent energy such as wind and solar.
Younicos battery storage system is faster and more precise than fossil fuel plant used for frequency regulation. Conventional power plants can block the grid. Batteries match it perfectly.
