    Fusion (an energy with a future) is the way to go.

    A better energy grid should always make sense to, "an empire where the sun never sets."

    When the wind stops blowing....it doesn't "go" anywhere.
    At night, the output of solar panels is pretty low.

    Hard to run a high tech economy with fluctuating power levels.

    Published - Jan 2016| Analyst - Christopher Maara| Code - EGY142

    Report Highlights
    The global market for grid-scale battery storage technologies reached $637 million in 2014. This market is projected to reach nearly $4.0 billion in 2025 from $716 million in 2015 at a compound annual growth rate of 18.7% for the period 2015-2025.

    Report Includes
    • An overview of the global markets for grid-scale electricity storage technologies.
    • Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2014, 2015, estimnates for 2020 and projections of CAGRs through 2025.

    I think that this report vastly underestimates the market for grid scale batteries in the near future.
