The looming German capacity crunch

Some months ago I tried to explain the concept of load shedding to a German I happened to strike up a conversation with. It was a tough job as it was hard to convey the concept of having to plan one’s use of electric power. I have friends in South Africa that must plan for their phone charging as if they mishandle this they end up with black screens and no way to charge them. But help is on the horizon. After 2022 and afterload shedding has become a reality in Germany, I won’t need to explain very much anymore. Once you are exposed to it you know it in the flesh. And most people need those visceral experiences in order to understand what they are dealing with when it comes to renewables.
