It omits the cost of backup power for renewables because including such a cost would require assumptions about the type of back up power. This means the number is meaningless. It also adds arbitrary fudge factors to "account" for CO2 emissions which have nothing to do with the real world cost of producing electricity.
We now have to evaluate environmental costs of energy use too, and burning fossil fuels is not winning.
