    Question: What's your take on the recently reported problems with the expansion of the grid and the development of electricity storage capacity causing the German government to want to slow down the speed of renewable development:

    Germany Hits Brakes on Race to Renewable Energy Future

    Seems to me a good problem to have that just shows what's possible and that they have to invest as much in grid infrastructure as in renewables, but would love to hear your take on it.

      so their coverage is rather biased. There were some temporary issues with grid connection and they are being solved right as we speak (it's another diary, though).

      But utilities, like banks (and other regulated industries) have whining as a business model and all you hear is the complaints which sometimes makes it look like things aren't working out. In this case, they are.
