Battery-driven energy storage systems are already being sold around the world to utilities and to homeowners with rooftop solar. However, studies suggest that energy storage for not just hours but for days and even weeks will be necessary to address the seasonal variation of expanded wind and solar power distribution. What technologies could step up to the plate as solutions, and how can we expedite their development?
Ongoing Discussion
As part of a larger OurEnergyPolicy initiative, we want your input on what principles should guide sound energy policy on the federal, state, and local levels. Read the discussion prompt, and add your comment.
Question 1: What principles would you advocate? Reply

Question 2: What are your thoughts on the principles identified by the webinar speakers? Reply

Question 3: Do you have questions you would like to pose to our panelists? Reply
"I suggest that we treat climate change as the clear and present danger that it is. Congress is not even close to treating the crisis with the seriousness that it deserves.... So rather than focusing on 'bipartisanship' and 'regular order,' we need dramatic and urgent action to immediately bring our global emissions down to zero....
To be clear, I am not saying that the principals laid out by the speakers are bad. They can can and should be incorporated into the action plan. But the main principal must be to treat the problem with the seriousness it deserves and go from there...."
- Dan Miller, Managing Director, The Roda Group
