      How Can We Store More Energy From the Sun and the Wind?

      Storage methods currently being used around the world include batteries, flywheels, geothermal plants, compressed air and hydrogen - even ice. But the the most popular method is hydro power - water pumped to the top of a mountain and then released to power turbines at the bottom. According to research company Navigant, global energy storage capacity is going to rise from about 1,750 megawatts (MW) in 2016 to nearly 11,000 MW by 2020.

      Tesla Unveils Batteries to Power Homes

      Chief executive Elon Musk announced the firm would build batteries that store solar energy and serve as a back-up system for consumers during blackouts. The device would allow consumers to get off a power grid or bring energy to remote areas that are not on a grid. Tesla plans to start shipping the units to installers in the US by this summer.

    3. Energy Storage Paves Way for Electricity Independence

      Energy Storage Paves Way for Electricity Independence

      Renewables have the power to transform not just the world's energy markets, but global economics and geopolitics. But wind and solar alone cannot deliver a world of clean and free fuel. Both are, by their very nature, variable, so to realise their true potential other technologies need to be harnessed. Improving connectivity to other countries is one relatively simple solution, but in a world where governments are becoming increasingly preoccupied with energy security, its attractions are somewhat limited. Managing demand more effectively using smart grids and appliances is another. But the technology with the most revolutionary potential is energy storage.
