Understated takeout from this one is that, when demand is high, during extreme heat, coal fired generators are the ones which go offline, whether steam pipes bursting or to save cooling water for later. It’s even more of a problem with nukes, e.g. big shutdowns last summer in France. Surely we need a plan, more than just a title, for which coal fired power stations will close, when and in what order. This makes space to ensure viability of more renewables.
