World’s Biggest Renewable Energy Battery Becomes World’s Biggest Joke

Many people know what intermittency means those days. They might not know the actual word but they know well enough that wind does not always blow and the sun does not always shine. Many have very funny ideas about how that is to be overcome as if there was no money to be spent for all those schemes. But what most people ignore totally is the fact that wind and solar electricity is not stable even when it flows. What you want is ON and then you know what you get and OFF. But renewables give you OFF or wildly changing power production even over the space of a minute. You need two kinds of expensive backups.
