L'éolien et le solaire prennent une place significative dans les mix électriques des pays développés. Comment ont-ils réussi leur percée? Les pays européens offrent différents modèles. Mais tous ces modèles ont leurs limites: la transition d'une économie de subvention à une logique de marché est une affaire complexe. Les énergies renouvelables seront-elles bientôt rentables?
