    Energy Made Easy – US to decarbonise by 2050 with energy storage

    US Energy Secretary Ernest Moriz believes energy storage will lead to full decarbonisation by 2050. Energy storage technology is rapidly advancing and soon it may allow wind and solar to overcome their major flaw of intermittent generation. It could even dispense with the need for nuclear and thermal power. “Energy storage is a huge deal,” says Ernest Moniz, US Energy Secretary and nuclear physicist. The US Department of Energy (DOE) is funding 75 storage projects to pursue what it calls the ‘Holy Grail’ of energy, as part of the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E).
