It doesn’t matter whether this turns out to be the ultimate answer or not. It is a game changer.

Sod your everlasting subsidies to nuclear. Sod your obsessions with oil and fracking. Sod the market mechanisms that (expensively) prop up old energy cartels.Except that in your admitted game changer, it was market mechanisms that brought it about.
