Whereas I've long been a fan of the idea of "democratising" energy production as opposed to keeping it centralised, I have not ever read an analysis that effectively enlists the benefits or arguments whether it is at all realisable.
How realisable is it to add a remaining 97 percent through de-centralised energy production? And if realisable, what are the benefits compared to centralised energy production?
Total durable energy production: 3.4 %
Total durable electricity production: 7.5%
Same question, just for 92% instead of 97%.
I'll take this as "I don't know" and keep on rooting for big wind farms in the meantime.
Huh!? I repeat: I don't see what distributed power has to do with the provision of high grid penetration. The only issue I can see is distributing intermittency-caused local surpluses/mitigating intermittency-caused local shortages, which leads straight to intermittency.
One whose delusions are out of fashion.
