Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This does need its own diary, give me a few hours. But basically: In order for wind to be a high fraction of the total kwh produced, you need either vast ability to shift electricity consumption in time, (not hours. Days, weeks) or a really large geograpical area interconnected. Without one of those - and either one will do - you end up with 2/3s of actual kwh being gas.
