Ecocentricity Blog - Solving the Intermittency Challenge: The Importance of Grid Storage as Renewable Electricity Rises

By: John A. Lanier
Summary: 

Wind and solar electricity generation is good for many reasons, but intermittency is a persistent challenge. There are multiple solutions to that challenge, but the most important one is figuring out how to cost-effectively store solar and wind energy. Lithium ion batteries may be the best way to do that currently, but I’ll be keeping an eye on a couple other battery types that could unlock grid storage at scale.
