    Of course, those of us who understand these issues (I am an environmental engineer specializing in renewable energy.) told them this would happen. It didn’t make any difference. Politics is more important than logic.

    Europe the ideal region to cope with intermittency? There are two sides to intermittency. What to do when there is a high pressure system over Europe in wintertime and there is little wind in Ireland, UK, Benelux, Germany, France etc. right up to Turkey, for a week or longer? It happens every year a couple of times.The interconnects will be quite empty then and all fossil fuel power plants will have to run at full power.
