    Regardless of the capture mechanism, wind energy systems and other variable and intermittant natural energy systems work best when they are used in conjunction with storage systems which allow one to smooth out the actual grid contribution. I prefer the use of pumped hydro systems, but there are lots of other suitable storage systems.
