New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has decided it is time batteries replace peaker plants running on gas in his city. Greentech Media sees this as explicit recognition of the harmful greenhouse emissions
While Tesla Founder Martin Eberhard wants to design electric cars around battery limitations, others are taking a different approach.

Twelve gigawatts of storage is a big number. Let us get our minds around it first. One gigawatt is 4.6 million solar panels

We need more renewable energy because it does not destroy matter. No amount of fossilized arguments can ever change that. Besides, ‘fossilized’ means archaic
Power stations have the role of supplying abundant power on demand. Since there is always the possibility of one tripping, utilities have traditionally added spinning reserve.
An Australian oil rig on battery power seemed a strange combination to us at first sight. Using renewable energy to extract non-renewable oil appeared to border on the absurd.
