The Energy Future Starting to Show Up

This is a very short post that may portend something big.  Energy storage has been the Holy Grail for the renewables sector some time now, and likely will continue to be for the foreseeable future. Nevertheless ...

Apparently, a Maryland-based company has teamed to produce the "first renewable energy storage system in the U.S. capable of not only storing generation when the sun's not shining, but also delivering power to the local electric grid."

Brief article is HERE.  And re: operational energy and FOBs ... note how transportable this thing looks.

Green energy is really safe for both the environment and our budget. Therefore many people switch to this energy source.

Very interesting ideas. Definitely a plus for America to become more reliant on the energy sources we can produce and store here.

It is good that we are starting to figure out ways that renewable sources of energy can compete with fossil fuels in order to start making the switch which will eventually be necessary. We need to make sure that our policies facilitate innovation in the energy sector instead of propping up current technology in the form of renewables and fossil fuels so we have a secure energy future.
