  •  Any method of energy production (6+ / 0-)

    where we don't control the rate at which energy is produced, must include some method of energy storage.
    Electrical energy, once produced, must be used (or converted and stored).

    Whether the storage method is kinetic (flywheels), chemical or potential energy (pumping water to a higher elevation or inflating undersea balloons) is largely immaterial until we work out what is most efficient in a given scenario.

    I am more that happy to see that these problems are being seriously addressed - meeting our energy needs is absolutely an existential problem.
