It will be interesting to see how the country handles baseload generation requirements as more energy is produced by "renewable" resources. Will there be more pumped hydro storage? Will they just keep relying on Lignite fired plants to supply baseload energy requirements? These are infrastructure changes that will need to be addressed sooner or later.
