The renewable energy generated from wind and solar sources is intermittent, so efficient storage in needed to make it work.
Batteries are changing in response to the implementation of wind and solar renewable energy systems. Lithium Ion batteries represent the state of the art now. Solid state batteries represent the next generation of power storage for vehicles. Nanotechnology permits units to be miniaturized, standalone, and portable. Utility scale lithium flow batteries have been developed to offer utility scale advantages. Advantages are evident in power and density: low-power draw and high-energy density.
