""Shoe-horning renewable technologies that cannot deliver the base-load electricity this country needs does no one any good and puts the American economy at risk," said Laura Sheehan, senior vice president of the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity, an industry group.
The Obama administration has repeatedly failed to acknowledge the negative consequences of replacing coal-fueled electricity, Sheehan said, "and now our federal government will become a model for bad policy.""
Grid wide energy storage could be used as baseload and spinning power generation. Poor, arcane and outdated utility business models are causing increases in energy rates, while they try to use an old business model to generate revenue in a changing, distributed energy generation environment. Sheehan is a dinosaur who is about to become extinct.
