Clean Energy to Combat Climate Change
Climate change is a worldwide threat that requires swift remedial action – including rapid transition to a carbon-free electric system. Among the most potent tools in the transition to a zero-carbon grid are wind power and solar energy. These renewable energy resources produce no emissions, and they are powered by free, sustainable energy sources.
Unfortunately, the availability of wind and sun varies minute by minute. Periods of cloud cover or calm, windless conditions leave them temporarily unable to generate electricity. As more and more wind and solar resources are added to the grid, the electric system needs ways to store their energy for use whenever it’s needed.
