Solar Capacity Outstrips Demand in Bavaria

VBEW: PV Boom in Bavaria More and More Challenging for Grid Operators « German Energy Blog:

"In periods of low demand on weekends and around noon, however, there is regularly more electricity generated by PV systems than consumed in Bavaria."

All participants in the electricity market are responsible for its functioning, VBEW points out. Hence, PV systems operators had to be prepared that their installations are temporarily taken control of (in the sense that they cannot feed into the grid) to ensure system stability

From Bavaria, we see solar at 8% of annual production requires the ability to turn off solar generation during low daily demand periods.
