Germany’s energy transition makes renewable energies cheaper for other countries – commentary

POWER Magazine

Germany’s years-long investment in, and deployment of, renewable sources of energy have brought down the cost of solar and wind power around the world, Aaron Larson writes in POWER. Other countries seeking to similarly transition to a carbon-free energy supply can also look to Germany for best practices. “Has Germany figured it all out? Probably not. But it has helped move the industry forward, and for that, we should all be thankful,” Larson writes.
