Submission + - Germany hits 25% renewable power, transition going smoothly says government (nhk.or.jp)

AmiMoJo writes: "The German government says the country's shift to renewable energy is going smoothly, with such energy now accounting for a quarter of all power consumption. German economics minister Philipp Roesler said the government has already taken 8 nuclear reactors offline, but this has had no impact on keeping the energy supply stable.

As well as increased capacity there has been a drive to save energy. Some Germans are opposed to price increases, although other countries are experiencing similar hikes."

The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.
