As we continually rely on clean and renewable energy sources, such as hydro, thermal, wind and solar, new challenges are presented with the impact their intermittent flow has on the grid. Storage of energy to reliably cover the times the sun isn’t shining and the wind isn’t blowing requires a realistic solution. Read full blog post.
