New German Renewable Record
During past Sunday April 30, a breezy and sunny day, German coal-fired power stations produced an all-time capacity low; between 15-16 hour less than 8 GW (coal 1.8 GW, lignite 6.2 GW). Nuclear 5 GW. Solar and wind produced 55.2 GW at 12:00. Between 13:00-15:00 the renewable share was 85%.
This situation will be the new normal by 2030, 13 years from now. By 2022 nuclear will be completely phased out.
