Something New Under the Sun

Renewable energy will never be able to power a significant portion of South Caroliana's electricity needs because it is too unreliable. The power will go out when the sun isn't shining or the (offshore) wind isn't blowing. Right?


This is just an engineering challenge to be met by SMART engineers. German university researchers recently completed a pilot study indicating that their nation could feasibly generate 100% of its energy needs from renewable energy.

And they made a video about it (in English)! If the Germans can do it, why can't we?
