Default Re: How a giant battery may save the world (osmium & irw)

This seems to be the only way to make renewables work for 100% of our power generation. Even then though, it is still a good idea to have some base load power generation though that we can throttle up or down on demand right?

Do we ever want to get to a place where we are using nearly 100% renewables for power generation?

And if not, what base load options should we use?


The main ones seem to be

coal
natural gas
nuclear

And all but the last spew toxins into the atmosphere, and unfortunately, the last will always be prevented from the irrational, so what is left for base load power generation?
