They seem to think that this is an argument in favour of their plans:
So, will the Energy [R]evolution mix in the year 2050 guarantee
a safe and secure 24/7 power supply?
The answer is yes! The analysis showed that there is only a 0.4%
chance – or 12 hours a year – that high demand correlates with
low solar and wind generation.
Meaning that for only half a day a year does the entire continent get plunged into the Middle Ages of no electrical power at all as the grid falls over.
This isn\’t quite the same as what I would call \”reliable\”, you know?
What\’s also amusing is that they define photovoltaics as \”fully commercial\”. So, why in buggery are we offering a feed in tariff of four times the going rate then?
Doesn\’t convince somehow.
