Decarbonization of the electric grid via clean energy resources such as solar and wind is recognized as a relatively easily managed transition — at least until penetration reaches over roughly 80 or even 90 per cent. After that, the variability of renewables — which run out of power in dark and windless periods — can become an issue.
