By God -- that vid is handbook on how to wreck a countries energy suppliers and make it a beggar nation. Where's the GOOD part? LOL
5min40seconds into the vid -- They GOOF up the deployment of wind so badly by insisting on underground N-South connectors instead of above ground -- so that the NEW deployment of wind turbines fell to the "lowest level in 2 decades"..
You SURE you watched and understood the carnage in this video??? This is what expected when the country is 25% controlled by a Green Party with no understanding of engineering or technology..
There have been other threads with not only Germany, but other European countries bragging about renewable energy.
Was Merkel afraid that a tidal wave was going to knock out the power to run the nuke plants?
Maybe they could just move their backup generators to a higher floor?
That dumb pipeline that Biden justly put an end to was going to send oil to China, not the US. And Germany will continue to build their renewable infrastructure as Tesla expands some of their energy business into Europe.That must be why they needed a Nordstream TWO pipeline from Russia to keep Germans from freezing in the wintertime when snow covers the solar panels huh?
Good idea from Biden? Approving THEIR pipelines and junking ours? Seems like the disparity in Covid compliance between Democrats edicts and the leaders IGNORING those edicts as they please.
Germany's generation is in the tank circling the drain. After ditching their nuclear for no good reason, they were still BUILDING COAL PLANTS up to 2020... At least they got that part right to keep the lights on.
What is expected to be the last new coal plant to come online in Germany entered commercial operation on May 30, more than a decade after it was firstwww.powermag.com

Where'd you get that idea? Oil is fungible, but no one wants to DIRECT ship crude from shale oil. Needs extra refining. You'd be shipping DEAD WEIGHT to China. And I know you've looked at a map. That pipeline ends up at our refineries. Both on the Gulf and in the Ohio valley. (What's left of them)
So -- We WERE PETROLEUM INDEPENDENT. In fact totally ENERGY independent.. No more "blood for oil".. So if some of that refined product got shipped ELSEWHERE -- you think that's a crime of some kind?

Germany does not have enough wind? Solution, build more Wind Turbines? Bigger? Now that is science.
Renewable energy accounted for a smaller slice of German usage in the first half of the year as wind output fell, industry groups said on Monday, falling to 42.6% of the total, down 8.1 percentage points.www.reuters.com
German renewables use knocked by lower wind outputOnshore wind production down 20.6%
Germany’s wind industry is now demolishing wind turbines faster than it can build them. During 2020, the Germans managed to add a paltry 200 new wind turbines to its fleet of over 30,000. Meanwhile, hundreds have already been demolished and – with hundreds more reaching the end of their economic life – the only growth area in Germany’s renewable energy sector will soon be demolishing them, recycling any metals worth keeping and burying their toxic fragments – including thousands of 10-12 tonne blades – in landfills overseas (probably somewhere in Africa).
In short, the seemingly endless growth in Germany’s wind power capacity has hit the wall. Much to the German wind industry’s horror.
Proving that, always and everywhere, the wind industry is built and runs on subsidies, now that they’re being wound back the glory days for Germany’s renewable energy outfits are well and truly over.
