i wonder if this is why we keep seeing bursts of coal generation when it is not really necassary  https://www.oxera.com/agenda/intermittent-power-generation-mothball-effect/

"These insights offer a framework to analyse generators’ investment incentives as they increasingly come to rely on intermittent power sources.[12] From this perspective, there is an important distinction between profitability at the firm level and profitability at the plant level. Firms benefit from having dispatchable facilities that operate few or even zero hours per year, as it limits the contracting costs paid to competitors.[13] Thus, the revenues generated by peaking plants need not cover the investment and variable costs. Plant profitability is not a necessary condition for profit maximisation, as a firm can maximise its profits by holding idle generation capacity."
