CleanTechnica presents the case for why we need massively decentralized solar and wind power. I don’t disagree, but think we need both millions of rooftop solar installations as well as gigawatts of solar in deserts.
Both require a new, smarter grid. Our current grid is not designed for power going both ways or for high variability in power production, and it can’t store power. All this needs to change for reliable renewable energy at grid scale to become a reality.
