Renewables cannot replace dispatchable generation. The replacement must be renewables plus storage sufficient to render the intermittent generation sources dispatchable. Renewable generation developers do not want to acknowledge this reality because the cost of the required additional generation capacity plus the cost of the required storage would clearly demonstrate that renewables are far from "cheaper" than power from conventional generation sources.
