German wind power beats coal and nuclear power

Bloomberg 24th Nov 2017, Power generated this year by onshore and offshore wind in Germany exceeded the amount of electricity coming from hard coal and nuclear plants for the
first time, the Fraunhofer ISE institute said on its website. German coal
plant operators choked generation from hard coal plants in favor of
cheaper-to-run lignite units this year and nuclear power operators kept
plants like Grundremmingen B, which were offline for extended periods,
Bruno Burger, a professor at Freiburg-based Fraunhofer ISE, said by phone
on Friday.
