If renewables are dependent on weather conditions, doesn't that mean they stop generating energy when the climate doesn't favor them, leaving customers without power? Would a turn to renewable energy inevitably be accompanied by backup use of power plants using traditional methods of electricity generation like burning coal, to provide a backup in case of failure?



The development of new technologies is often accompanied by skepticism, and naysayers can actually play an important role in pushing researchers to design the best systems possible.  See full article.
