Point to Ponder Can distributed generation increase the usefulness of wind and solar energy

We have noted previously that energy from wind and sunshine is not always produced when it is needed. The Sun does not shine on a particular spot on the surface of the Earth all day long, but the Sun does shine all the time.

We can use sunlight 24 hours per day if we can collect sunlight at different locations around the globe. Similarly, the wind does not usually blow all the time at a particular location, but wind is always blowing somewhere. Distributed generation can be used to harvest both wind energy and solar energy. Improved power distribution and transmission systems could be used to produce energy from wind and sunshine in different parts of the world and transmit it to places where it is needed. A global energy distribution system would have to be developed and maintained to achieve this capability.
