Renewables plus storage would have to be cheaper than nuclear for it to become the primary electricity generating technology; otherwise we'll just have nuclear.

I'm a big fan of using EVs connected to the grid to smooth power delivery, but we'd probably need half of all vehicles to be EV. Currently 1% of vehicles sold are EV. Maybe we're 30 years out, at best, from being able to implement such a system?
