@doc @EU_Commission I don't know about the grid in your area, but over here people increasingly have their inverters switch off on sunny days due to grid capacity issues. (Grid voltage increases beyond a threshold.)
So "why not now" is because - most likely - grids need updating and/or people need to install home-batteries and/or buy newer EV's that can act as buffers.
@niels @EU_Commission I would argue the opposite: Just because it sometimes isn’t helpful for some people doesn’t mean solar shouldn’t be installed. It can still be useful for some of the time.
The grids will also not be upgraded until there is a strong demand - which you don’t get by waiting. We need to act now, even if it isn’t perfect.
All these arbitrary delays are unnecessary and just serves to make the inevitable more severe.
Это конечно круто, но я очень сомневаюсь, что этого хватит для обеспечения 50% энергии таким количеством, на столько квартир. Тем более, солнце не всегда светит.
That's cool, of course, but I highly doubt it's enough to provide 50% of the energy in that amount, for that many apartments. Especially since the sun doesn't always shine.
@EU_Commission How about changing regulation now to make it easier to get and run renewables for everyone? For example: drop all taxes on the Hardware and drop all taxes on the renewable engergy production?
@EU_Commission If I don't remember wrong. Firefighters tend to refuse to stop fires in houses with solar panels. So i hope you have a plan for firesecurity first, because it will be more than annoying if a whole or part of a city has to burn down from a single fire, because of those EU-prescribed Solarpanels
@SoerenVSM @EU_Commission that's not true. Fire fighters also fight fires in houses with solar panels. They have to protect themselves from electricity but they have to do that anyway. It makes their job a little bit harder but they get trained to handle that and there are security measures on installing the panels to make that easier and safer. So fires can be distinguished also with solar panels on the roof.
@EU_Commission That's all well and good but when are we going to face up the the fact that storage tech is to immature and expensive to provide a reliable baseload meaning we will need to keep the existing nuclear fleets up as long as possible while working on replacing them with passively safe small modular reactors if we are to have any hope of meeting emissions goals?
@hackbyte @EU_Commission Maybe your grid is different to ours. Ours in NL is regularly overloaded, especially in areas with lots of solar panels. Entire new built areas cannot be hooked up. We use an electric car and have 19 solar panels, but cannot get a heavier charger, because there us no roomth on the grid. We have to use a slow, ordinary converter to consume our own produced electricity. In other areas they simply shut the self-production down to zero because the infra is overloaded.
@hackbyte We simply maxed out our grid on several locations throughout the country. Like one big Stau. Of course sometimes it's regulations that create an extra problem. For now we still have that old meter that runs back when we produce energy. Wanna know more about our 'nuts' try this: https://www.liander.nl/nieuws/2022/05/12/update-capaciteit-elektriciteitsnet
