Peak Gas Is Coming to the U.S. Sooner Than Anyone Expected
Renewables, meanwhile, still carried the stigma of hippie-ish science experiments that depended on government support and couldn't provide around-the-clock electricity as long as the sun set and the wind ebbed. But the arrival of big-storage batteries has meant that wind and solar power will slowly be less dependent on the whims of weather, calling into question assumptions that there would be plenty of need for new gas alongside renewables. Solar farms backed up by batteries are already beating out gas on costs in parts of the U.S. Southwest , thanks in part to sharply falling prices of lithium-ion systems.
