        Japan  is worried about getting too much of its electricity from solar wind power stations. That""s because higher renewable generation would force coal gas power plant operators to slash operating rates, which then would push these conventional electricity facilities over their break-even lines, the government says in a report. Lower generation from thermal power plants means less carbon dioxide emissions, but the government does not want the shift to renewables to be overdone, citing cases in Spain, plants have sharply slowed because of large flow of renewable electricity into grids. Japan is currently discussing its energy mix in 2030, aiming to come up with a conclusion around late spring to early summer. The government wants renewable energy to account for 20% of all electricity, compared to about 10% now, use nuclear power to cut CO2 emissions.
