We need a secure, reliable electricity supply 24 hours a day. We also need to make more use of renewable energy resources, such as solar and wind, to reduce our reliance on non-renewable fossil fuels. But, it’s not so easy to just switch over to using solar and wind for all our energy needs. The clouds pass the sun and the wind gusts fast and slow. This means that solar power and wind power are not always available when needed.
The solution to this problem lies in energy storage. By storing the energy generated from solar and wind power in reliable, powerful batteries, we can have a power supply that is available 24/7: – without costing the Earth.
