“If we built enough wind and solar to meet approximately 170% of demand over the year (ie, 70% over-generation), then supply and demand could have been matched on every day of the year with the help of existing hydro. It could eliminate all instances of ‘Other’ or long-term storage requirements.”
This is responding to Peter Dutton & Co ranting long discarded option for SMR(small modular nuclear) power. No way can it compete with current proven renewable technology, which continues to improve.
