Energy storage technologies and renewable energy sources

  • Renewable energy sources are expected to play an important role in preventing climate change, but they are confronted with a number of barriers, such as their intermittency and high costs. Energy storage presents an excellent opportunity for them to overcome intermittency obstacle. Conventional thermal, compressed air, pumped hydro, batteries, fly-wheels, as well as new hydrogen fuel cell, wind, solar, and different hybrid energy storage technologies are described and a number of promising examples highlighted.
