The very increased efficiency, much lower cost of giant Lithium batteries have made renewable energy substitution over other forms of electricity generation possible. What's more, the implications of this transformative technology are that big dam projects, such as Site C, are no longer necessary. It's time for Canadian governments to stop planning from the rearview mirror of time and to rapidly move forward to energy production and corresponding jobs into wind, solar, and geothermal power. Stop wasting huge money on dams, refurbishing nuclear, continuing with tar sands oil and water-destroying fracking.
