Summary:

Some critics of renewable energy say it is not ever going to be able to provide enough power for our current energy use, let alone for projected growth of energy demand. This is because it relies mostly on natural resources, like wind and sun, which dont appear to be available 24/7. This report shows how that thinking is wrong.
