Analysis of renewable energy points toward more affordable carbon-free electricity

As TechExplore reports, a study conducted by the California Institute of Technology finds that in order to reach a 100% renewable energy grid, advancements in battery/energy storage are required.

  • This is important because many policy proposals that call for a 100% renewable energy grid are unfeasible.
  • We at C3 Solutions support renewable energy, but we realize that there is no silver bullet.
  • An “all of the above” energy approach is key to reducing emissions while providing reliable energy for consumers.

“Energy storage is needed with renewable energy because wind and solar energy are not as reliably available as fossil fuels. For example, wind power is often at its lowest during the summer in the United States, which is when the electrical grid is strained the most by the demand for air conditioning in homes and businesses.”
