Location selection and wind solar mix

Key messages:

  • Wind and solar installations should be distributed over the country, and not only concentrated in the most sunny windy locations
  • Policy should strive for an optimal mix of wind and solar installations in order to reduce system cost
Dr. Georg Zachmann, Dr. Frank Meißner
