Pump It Up: Wind ‘Powered’ Britain Draining Europe’s Coal-Fired Plants via French Interconnector

This game is being played everywhere. Germany imports nuclear and coal electricity when their wind and solar fail and exports dumping power when they overproduced. They use the rest of Europe as their flexibility option. California does the same in the US and so do many other nations. Thats what integrated markets are for. I was always a free trader but slowly I come to believe that this right has been a bad idea all along as it enables this kind of fraud. If each country had to live with what it has, wind and solar would have collapsed much earlier.
