In 2011, the instances where generated electricity (from the East and North) couldn't be transported to where it is needed most (the West and South) were more frequent than in 2010.
Specifically, reducing generator output happened four times as much as in 2010. Between Thueringen and Bayern, every fifth hour was problematic. Turning off generators (of renewable energy) completely happened three times as much. Until now, this was, however, enough to at least guarantee service quality for all citizens.

New transmission connections are direly needed but there is controversy where to put them and citizens refuse to have them near where they live, which prolongs the construction date.
