... or with a renewable energy sector that is among the most innovative and successful worldwide according to Wikipedia.
In the country where they are doing this, renewables are taken off the grid on a regular basis because of overproduction and power is regularly sold for extremely low or even negative prices (I kid you not) to European neighbors. So, instead of not producing power by stopping wind turbines on windy days or losing money selling / giving away excess power, it could be put to good use even if you chose to "burn" it in a not very efficient conversion process. Some interesting numbers here. That said, I'm off to RTFA.
