People have known for decades that solar and wind energy are cleaner and healthier than energy produced by fossil fuels. But utilities and consumers have sometimes expressed concerns about the variability and dependability of these renewable energy sources. Those concerns are starting to fade with the emergence of game-changing energy storage technologies. According to a new white paper released today by Environment America, the rapid growth of less expensive wind and solar energy, combined with plummeting costs for energy storage, has led to a six-fold increase in energy storage capacity (excluding pumped hydropower) over the past decade.
