    Energy Storage, a Crucial Piece in the New Technology Jigsaw

    Alternative power sources are rapidly becoming a crucial part of the global power sector due to the rising acknowledgment of the environmental damage caused by fossil fuels. Despite rising public and government support, the key obstacle in the path of the alternative energy market has consistently been the fluctuations in the energy output achieved by the use of most alternative energy sources. The lack of a reliable energy storage technology that will allow for long-term storage of the energy generated from renewable energy sources has exacerbated the problems holding back the alternative energy sector and is thus likely to be a key area of research in the coming years.
