A key to the generation of high proportions of power from inherently variable renewable energy sources is the use of energy storage, to both smooth out short term mis-matches between supply and demand and to balance longer term, inter-seasonal differences.
Key learning objectives:
Describe the present and future energy storage technologies
Describe how new manufacturing models are being used for batteries and solar panels
Explain the significance of bi-directional connection of electric vehicles
The Drivers of Widespread Renewable Energy Adoption
