Energy storage: Why we need it, and what it's worth : Renew Economy

Energy storage: Why we need it, and what it's worth : Renew Economy | Battery, Automotive, Energy Power and Environment | Scoop.it
As solar power generation expands at breakneck speed, its long-term value, both to the consumer and the grid operator, will be intertwined with the ability to store that electricity.

Stephane Bilodeau's curator insight, July 14, 2013 9:45 PM

“It is clear that with the transformation of the global energy systems, wind and solar will be the two main pillars of these new systems,” said Professor Eicke Weber, the head of Germany’s Fraunhofer Solar Institute. “And to address that, we need to do something about storage. But it is the fastest growing sector and we will see big falls in costs.”
