      Investing in Energy Storage for Solar, Wind Power Could Greatly Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions

      At times renewable energy sources can produce more power than is needed, leaving some solar or wind energy to go to waste. This oversupply condition is a lost opportunity for these clean energy resources to displace pollution from fossil fuel-powered plants. But by creating complex models analyzing power systems in California and Texas, University of Michigan scientists show in a study that investing in batteries and other energy storage technologies can be economically viable with proper policy support. That, in turn, could radically reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases and increase the use of solar and wind energy.
