Well to Wheel of EV greatly surpasses the efficiency of Gasoline vehicles, they've done numerous independent government studies to confirm this. They wouldn't be able to approve buildout of infrastructure otherwise.
Hydro is going to become extremely unreliable in the future, as we're seeing rivers dry up and entire temperature belts shift.
The water is not used up by Hydro, it's used up by AGRICULTURE to grow things like alfalfa, soy, corn. The majority of which is used as Feedcrop for cows/chicken/pig. 70-75% of grains grown by humans is feed crop, which is then converted to only ~15% of total calories humans eat. this system is highly inefficient. in the case of some cows it's up to 24 calories in 1 calorie out.
Wind and Solar is not spotty, Storage solutions already exist, they just haven't been built. Australia has 2 states which are 100% renewable, w/ batteries, and they are the most reliable local grids in australia.
Nuclear power has been a historical failure because it is cost prohibitive, they've never ever made money, and it is NOT carbon neutral, if you count the mining, transportation and refining, it comes out to 6% cleaner than coal. (lazard financial)
In the USA, 75% of Department of Energy spending is on nuclear, but we're not getting much power out of it, so where did the money go, that's because they're actually the department of nuclear weapons.
The only reason nuclear power still exists is because it's a frontend for Nuclear weapons. It is net negative if used as a power source because of the nearly indefinite cost of waste management. There is also no existing technology to deal with the waste, safe long term storage solutions do not yet exist.
Burying waste is NOT a good plan, #1 the material is dangerous for up to 1 million years, #2 the ground is NOT solid, it moves, #3, the ground is Porous, you can easily contaminate water sources/cycles/ aquifers. #4 it's very easy to forget where you buried something at the scale of 1 million years. #5 in the event containment breaks, you have to go dig it up, that's either impossible or cost 1000x the labor of burying it in the first place.
Nuclear technology in its current form is a dead end because it's not ECONOMICALLY feasible for the paltry amount of energy it produces.
France's biggest nuclear provider went bankrupt, absorbed into their State-Power, and they're still tittering on bankruptcy. The debt is serviced by taxes, the people are paying for the state's failure.
