Wind vs Solar: duel in the sun

Mixed solar/eolica auctions are a current topic and news as the last mixed auction in Germany where the solar PV took all the projects in front of the wind make that more and more voices are heard advocating multitechnology auctions where, as is predictable, the solar offers unattainable prices for other technologies. But is this the right approach? should the price be the only driver? will the solar PV really be unbeatable in mixed auctions? for those who are short of time, here are the quick answers: Depends, No and Yes. For those who have a few minutes to delve deeper into these questions, here are some arguments ...
