Renewables hold key to future
This is with reference to the article, “Germany in transition” (September 1-15, 2013). I have seen the extensive wind farms set up in north Germany near Hanover during my visits to the country. The farms are, indeed, impressive. I have also visited Wacker Chemie in Burghausen, one of the largest manufacturers of polysilicon in Europe. However, the photovoltaic (PV) industry in Germany is facing a crisis due to the import of Chinese modules. Your article seems to be oblivious of the present scenario.
