File photo of a worker mounting 320 square metres of solar panels on the roof of a farmstead barn in Binsham near Landshut March 21, 2012. Six years ago Capital Stage was a small investment holding company. Today it is a renewable energy utility producing nearly 200 megawatts (MW) of solar and wind power that posted operating earnings of 25 million euros in 2011. Germany's energy industry needs to achieve a similar transformation on a massive scale to meet a looming capacity gap prompted by the government's decision to exit nuclear power. If Germany's energy revolution -- heralded as the "Energiewende" -- succeeds, it could become a model for other industrialised countries seeking to curb both greenhouse gas emissions and their dependence on imported energy. If it fails, the backlash will be huge.Credit: REUTERS
