Eer rather a misleading headline? Nothing in the article points to any real problems like power cuts?

Curtailment is the single issue, as far As I can see.

When renewables are simply reduced (or used elsewhere - storage?) it will be a very good place to be.  Zero cost electricity would be accepted by all the end users - I am confident of that!🙂

Well, sure there is a grid issue in Germany , so the  title is not  far off ,  but i agree ,  issue might be the wrong word , for too much,  unevenly spread renewable power

And as the article states , is mainly a problem of shifting power through bigger power-lines  through the country , 

That issue would not be there, if  more decentralized ideas would in-cooperated, smaller businesses or just households , instead waiting for the big cables to be coming online  and , basicaly help more or less the energy giants in charge , that gave feck all about renewable s ,  years back
