Energy Storage Systems
Everyone wants free power. Solar energy is cheaper than ever now, and solar cells can be had at a bargain. Even wind power can help during the night when there isn't any sunlight. But you have to put some sort of power storage system together to save all that power for later use. That turns out to be the most expensive part of the system! We examine energy storage and such concepts as supercapacitors and compressed air systems.
