Re: Energy storage for wind and solar power

It helps when for "revenue" you can rely on subsidies.
I would guess that some of these schemes are really trying to source subsidies and grants. It beats making something that is cost competitive. On the other hand I wonder if all that ingenuity that goes into these various schemes might not be better employed pursuing better solutions.
