My stakeholders believe clean power will make our grid unreliable. How can I respond to this?

I’m looking for some arguments and evidence you have found useful to respond to this misconception that clean power makes electric service unreliable.

Have you heard this argument? How has this misconception affected your work to advance clean power? What arguments and evidence have you found useful to respond to and dismiss this misconception?

Clean power is more flexible than coal and natural gas, and in this sense it has significant benefits. A recent report by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Germany found that during the COVID pandemic in 2020, the use of coal has dropped more sharply than any other power source.
