He said MGreen's plans were aligned with MGen's growth aspirations, which-aside from the new focus on renewables-continued to push for the use of high-efficiency, low-emission (HELE) technology for baseload
power plants or facilities that run round the clock.
There needs to be a baseload
supply for days when there is no wind.
"This coming winter, following the closure of a number of coal plants, we are 10% down on baseload
capacity compared to last winter when the spare margin on the grid was already very low.
"The problem with this is that there is now no incentive to build new baseload

Headquartered in Novi, MI, Aria Energy provides baseload
renewable energy to utilities and other customers across the United States.
Using this approach, all plants with generation capacity factors less than 0.2 are considered non-baseload generation plants, and those with capacity factors greater than 0.8 are considered baseload
She referred to nuclear power which was the "only known 24/7 baseload
power supply with zero emissions." The Age (http://www.theage.com.au/federal-politics/political-news/tony-abbott-open-to-the-nuclear-option-in-australia-20141201-11xq29.html) reported that she had also said that the government was considering new targets for carbon reduction that should be announced during a new global treaty in Paris in December, 2015.
"I think it is unavoidable that the Japanese utilities will write off most of their nuclear 'assets' and move on," said Mycle Schneider, a Paris-based independent energy consultant.The plan defines nuclear as an "important baseload
power source" meaning it can feed constant power to the grid to meet minimum requirement.
