Dead End Street: There’s No High-Tech Fix For Wind & Solar’s Hopeless Intermittency

All the fixes that had been proposed so far were utterly unrealistic as their price would have busted any energy economy. But it’s worse than this. We have come to understand that wind and solar are just a bit more expensive than what we have, but not very much. In reality, those two sources of energy have used overcapacities in the grid that had been created to secure us against exceptional circumstances. It was the fat in the system that kept us safe when the devil had a field day. And we used that up. a free subsidy of inestimable value to wind and solar. But it’s gone now – and we need real solutions. With a real price tag. You are welcome.
