Solving the Green Energy Storage Problem

Solving the Green Energy Storage Problem

A variety of ways to store excess electricity produced by solar and wind power, to be used when the sun isn’t shining and the wind isn’t blowing, have been and are being developed and tested, and scientists are anxious to find new, better, cheaper ways. Academic departments, businesses, and public energy research labs have been bursting with innovation and have seen steep increases in enrollment in electrical and environmental engineering programs. The outlook for education and research on the excess wind and solar electricity problem looks more promising than ever: MIT, Stanford, and others have recently started to tap into the power of the web by offering engineering courses for free online; and accredited PhD online programs in a variety of engineering disciplines are currently in development.
