Renewable energy technologies are appearing on the landscape around the globe. But we still rely on oil, gas and coal to keep the lights on if the wind doesn’t blow or the sun doesn’t shine. Is it possible for renewable energy to be ready whenever we need it? Can we support new demands on our grid, such as electric vehicle charging? Energy storage may be the answer.
