Energy Storage Gives Renewables A Jump-Start

It can discharge power to the grid to meet demand more quickly and efficiently, and it's less prone to disruption, because power sources are distributed over a large area, so if one part is knocked out by a storm, for example, other parts keep the system running.

How Can We Store Renewable Energy?

Entrepreneurs, inventors and researchers all over the world are beavering away, trying to find an answer to a multi-billion dollar question: How do you cheaply and reliably store energy for the grid? In Canada we've got many entrepreneurs working on figuring out energy storage.
