Germany has recently announced that it intends to move its energy production to 100% renewable sources by 2035 (as reported e.g. by Reuters). This seems to include phasing out both power plants reliant on fossil fuels (coal, oil, natural gas) and nuclear reactors. According to my understanding, most of the renewable sources of energy are somewhat unstable and require being backed up either by conventional power plants or by energy storage with sufficient capacity. Since the technology for large-scale grid energy storage is still in relative infancy, it would seem that Germany's plan may be challenging or even impossible to implement in practice. I was wondering if any of the German politicians laid out concrete steps to achieve the proclaimed goal or at least explained why the government considers it realistic.
