Energy Storage in a nutshell

Energy Storage in a nutshell

by Andy Goldman on September 16, 2012

In a recent energy summit, Energy Storage was considered as one of the top 5 technologies that are necessary to delay or postpone climate change. Energy Storage is also an essential ingredient of the Renewable Energy Sources expansion since it is needed to solve the element of unpredictability for some of the renewable green energy […]

Solar energy storage can help increase the mix of solar systems, CSP and PV, and wind energy systems in the generation of electrical power; solar energy companies with experience in both CSP and PV systems are expected to benefit most.

Energy Storage is key for Renewable Energy Sources’ penetration into power generation. Renewable Energy Sources (RES) have become of particular importance in the establishment of green, environmentally friendly applications; thus they constitute a crucial piece of the puzzle for achieving global environmental, economical and social/political sustainability.
