The Energy Storage Hand Gets More Interesting

I think energy storage for PV & grid buffering will in the conventional battery / flow cell / electrical energy storage remain prohibitively expensive. An exception might be to power buffer ( energy buffer ) at nuclear power plants to utilize the fuel overnite to add daytime capacity, ON the existing grid. There you are offsetting partial cost of a new nuclear plant. PV for grid scale power plants, precisely because of the cost of electrical energy storage, is far less sensible than developing grid scale High Concentration Molten Salt Solar Thermal power plants, where to add energy storage all one does is add an inexpensive LIQUID ( molten salt ) Tank to an existing molten salt solar thermal power plant. This is most cost effective at highest concentration and higher operating temperatures in concentrating solar thermal, only possible with Molten Salt, and not suitable for...
