Is it possible to get 100 percent of our energy from renewable sources? 22.5.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
The questions regarding renewable energy are never-ending. Is there enough space for all the wind turbines and solar panels to provide all our energy needs? What happens when the sun doesn't shine and the wind doesn't blow? Won't renewables destabilise the grid and cause blackouts? A study conducted by the Lappeenranta University of Technology explored these questions and came to some interesting conclusions. The researchers doubted the feasibility of many of the recent scenarios for high shares of renewable energy, questioning everything from whether renewables-based systems can survive extreme weather events with the low sun and low wind, to the ability to keep the grid stable with so much variable generation.

They demonstrated that there are no roadblocks on the way to a 100 percent ...
