Getting connected: Europe's green energy 'supergrid'
It is a criticism frequently leveled at those promoting wind or solar power as an alternative to fossil fuels: what happens when the wind doesn't blow or the sun doesn't shine?
Well, now there is a smart answer, at least in Europe -- we'll simply and instantly switch to another source of clean, green power.
The gird should mean that when one source falls short, another takes up the slack to ensure continuity of supply.... It is seen as an essential step towards the European Union's pledge to source 20 percent of its electricity from renewables by 2020.

Is that supposed to make sense...it sure doesn't seem to.

Often with those at first, impossible seeming things the old adage of ' Where there's a will, there's a way." comes to mind.
There has to be a way but perhaps not something we can envisage with the way we do things currently. One little monkey has to think outside the box in just the right way........
