What is the differene between the red line and the grey?

Google translate did not help much.

Is it something to do with (some) solar not being in the total generated but being a reduction from consumption?

The page that this came from says that the data they are receiving has some obvious errors. I guess that is causing the confusion. (The red line seems to be the total power usage, and the grey curve seems to be the conventional power station production.)

Further down the page it says

"If the gray area (generation from conventional power plants) exceeds the load curve, Germany is a net exporter of electricity, falls below net importer of electricity."

I'd guess that the grey area is total generation, (the graph doesn't make sense if it was just conventional generation) and the red line is total consumption.

so where are we going ?  over   5 years past after that post

We talk about intermitentcy of   Wind and PV  and the big need of storrage ,  and i am wondering if that discussion  is only good or sometimes counterproductive ??

  In my eyes this graph tells me , there should be at least double the amount of PV and Wind  power installed  now , even with no complete storrage solution idea , so what are we waiting for ?  And this is March 2018,  where people have to heat and drive, so much more renewable energy in total needed, beside  electricity
