Biden supports keeping existing nuclear plants open, which could bode well for investment in new technologies. He tosses cookies around to everyone at the table, however:
"Biden also backed nuclear power, unlike some of his Democratic primary opponents. He called for pumping up research on still-developing power technologies like hydrogen power and grid-size storage to stash power from solar and wind, overcoming a key drawback of those carbon-free energy sources now."
Though cookies for the Green New Dealers were necessary to solidify his base, BIden knows hydrogen and batteries aren't "overcoming" intermittency and never will.
