Eos Energy Storage believes it might have the disruptive technology for grid-scale energy storage and has just raised a bit of funding to prove it. Many energy experts (not all ) believe the piece missing from a reliable, renewable energy-laden grid is energy storage. It's routinely called the "holy grail" of the grid and like the grail, exists mostly in myth, and in energy storage's case, in utility trials. The predominant technology in grid-scale electrochemical storage is sodium sulfur in batteries built predomiinantly by Japan's NGK, currently undergoing a setback due to accidents involving fires .
