The renewable energy skeptic argues that wind and solar cannot be the foundation for a dependable electricity grid because of their variability. With the expansion of renewables and the development of new methods of storing and managing energy, a grid that can be both reliable and clean can be achieved.
Myth No. 1: Renewable energy contributes to a less reliable grid.
Myth No. 2: Countries like Germany must continue to rely on fossil fuels to keep the grid stable and make up for variable wind and solar power.
Myth No. 3: Since solar and wind energy only can be generated when the sun is shining or the wind is blowing, they cannot support a grid that must provide electricity 24/7, year-round.
