Who needs fossil fuels? All we need is batteries, demand response and a smart energy system, when the wind does not blow and the sun does not shine!
So the theory goes anyway.
It’s just as well we’ve still got all of that old fashioned coal, gas and nuclear power today:
Wind power is currently down to just 228 MW, out of a total demand of 43306 MW, ie just 0.5%.
The grid is almost solely reliant on gas, coal and nuclear, which are currently supplying 40004 MW.
Meanwhile, solar power is doing little better. At its midday peak, it was generating at only 10% of its capacity.
When will somebody tell the emperor that he is wearing no clothes?
