Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
It's nice to see that something I banged about on a theoretical level (thinking it may come to pass in decades...) actually works: wind+solar with comparable capacities combine to something resembling the diurnal (and annual) variation of consumption on average. On a related issue, a recent article on the economic unviability of a pumping storage power plant pointed at the merit order effect of solar as cause.
