Isn't that why China is building up its Ultra High voltage electricity network to transport electricity on a continental scale and create a more central energy market?Very pathetic.
This happens when the sociohackers in the politics try to do job that needs math/engineering skills.
The pre-requisite for wind/solar and electric transport is the cheap and abandunant storage capacity, but the investent into that area laggin by 15-20 years behind the actual windmils.
Means up to this point they used for storage the writen off coal/natural gas power plants .
As soon as they stop to produce out the quadratic relationship between the randomly changing wind speed and power generation become obivous. And all cost structure up to this date gone down on the drain .
Still no visible sign about that the windmills and solar panels could cheat the "limits of growth "
Here in the Netherlands they did exactly what you said invest in Wind and Solar energy. But given the network is privately managed no company though about starting upgrading that shit 20 years ago. So now you failures in our energy network because there is either too much or too little energy being distributed. At least that is what i understood of it.
