My problem with the idea is that these sources are intermittent, meaning we need to maintain 100 per cent backup power that we don’t intend to run much of the time, in the absence of better storage.These power sources are also more expensive than conventional power (even before you factor in the cost of that backup power that’s idling a lot) and we don’t really know how our existing electrical grids are going to manage this intermittency. And if our current grids need massive rebuilding, we’re
