Industry experts warn of power shortages due to 'renewable' energy

"Traditional and nuclear power plants are being retired to make way for renewable sources of energy, but the plants are going offline faster than renewable energy and battery storage can keep up."

Company executives who own electrical grids are making dire pronouncements about potential mass shortages over plans to replace fossil-fuel and nuclear plants with "renewable" sources.

John Bear, the CEO of MISO told the press on Sunday, "As we move forward, we need to know that when you put a solar panel or a wind turbine up, it’s not the same as a thermal resource."

According to Fox News, "the issue is on the rise throughout the country as many traditional and nuclear power plants are being retired to make way for renewable sources of energy, but the plants are going offline faster than renewable energy and battery storage can keep up."

"Green" energy sources such as solar and wind rely heavily on batteries. Battery efficiency is constantly improving, but it's not enough to keep up with current demand if plant closures continue as planned, Bear said.

Brad Jones, acting CEO for the Electric Reliability Council of Texas, said "every market around the world is trying to deal with the same issue."

"We’re all trying to find ways to utilize as much of our renewable resources as possible…and at the same time make sure that we have enough dispatchable generation to manage reliability."

Both supply chain issues and inflation are reportedly slowing the process.
