Exploiting renewable energy sources makes sense on many levels: first as a response to the world’s reliance on fossil fuels and to reduce climate-changing emissions.

It is here that energy storage promises to significantly increase the stable, reliable penetration of renewables into the grid, and perhaps in the long term, make grid disconnection a viable alternative for many users.
