Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think that terms of access matter. Switching to natural gas fired power stations is predicated on natural gas being quite cheap.  The problem is that the increased use of gas for electric production raises the price, so it's no longer cheap. I believe that there was a cycle with petroleum fired stations during the 1950s through the 1970s.
