Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
ok, but germany needs at least 150 GW of carbon-neutral electricity to replace fossil fuels (including transport and heating without fossil fuels). doing that with wind requires 75,000 sq km of land without trees or buildings - something like 22 percent of germany's land surface.  And there's not much scope for offshore wind: look at a map and see how much offshore water is less than 30 m deep.
