Record of the Day

Wind and solar produced as much as 60% of Germany’s electricity during the 3 October, according to an energy consultant.
Around noon of that day, the two renewable technologies were producing 59.1% of the country’s power with conventional sources above 100MW in size producing just 23GW, according to the study by Bernard Chabot.

How is it that Germany can get 60% of its electricity from wind and solar when we've been told for years that above 5% or 10% or 20% the costs of integration go through the roof? Germany has reached an instantaneous penetration of nearly 60% but the integration costs have been moderate. Hmmm... Curious...
