I think so.

A very large chunk of the renewables are simply a scam of the rich,
connected, informed against the poor, unconnected and uninformed.
Every one pushing for an investment needing subsides to return a profit
is, effectively, pushing for a scam. And scam have a bitter end, like a
bust, default, bankrupt declaration.

I want see how the German economy will fare when they will close down
their nuclear power (not only talk about it). I want see how many jobs

Your solar cell industry is bust, legally dead. The brains are leaving

I want to see how much the PV incentives will stay, without a national
industry to receive the benefit of this policy and advocating for it.
