Germany's great renewables challenge

Germany's switch away from nuclear and push toward 36 per cent renewables by 2020 is a bold one, but to be a success there are several hurdles it must overcome.

Germany will have to deploy a range of technologies and strategies to protect its grid from a continuing power supply overhaul, after shutting a swathe of its nuclear fleet and with a rapid rise in renewable power.

The country last year closed the country's oldest nuclear plants, shutting eight facilities, and accelerated a phase-out which sees its last power plant shut by 2022.
