Batteries Will Change the Energy Industry Forever - cleantech perspectives @ Clixoo
This article speaks about how energy storage is suddenly an economical asset to consider as part of the electric grid and how this could change the energy industry forever.
Moo: Battery storage has been the talk of the town for the last few years, Xoo
Xoo: As it should be. You read what I read. The numbers say it all.
Moo: And do you expect it to grow at this pace in future too?
Xoo: I expect an even higher pace of growth. Take just one statistic that the report mentions - $20-$30/MWh levelized cost for wind/solar power with batteries. We are talking about batteries increasing the cost of renewable by perhaps 25-30%, no more.
Moo: Isn’t that a significant increase, 25-30%?
Xoo: Somewhere around 2010, it was 250-300%, Moo. I rest my case.
