Coherent promotion of renewables under a carbon emissions cap

The German energy transition, with its massive subsidization of variable renewable electricity generation (wind, solar, etc.) leading to its dramatic expansion, has spurred controversy proportional to its ambitions. This chapter focuses on just one critique addressed against it: that it is actually bad for the climate. It shows that promoting renewables was not necessarily inefficient in the real world and it was certainly not ineffective at a global level.
