My new post: if we want a system that runs entirely on renewable energy, we’ll need lots and lots of energy storage. Just how cheap would storage have to get to make 100% renewables the most economic option? New research out of @MITIDSS digs in.  https://www.vox.com/energy-and-environment/2019/8/9/20767886/renewable-energy-storage-cost-electricity?utm_campaign=drvox&utm_content=chorus&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter 

One company/tech I left out of today's post: @EnergyVaultInc does "gravity-based" storage, basically hauling weights up & down. What other clever new energy- storage techs/cos. are on your radar?  https://energyvault.com/ 

Speaking of energy storage, here's a cool piece on compressed air energy storage (CAES) from @Sammy_Roth:  https://www.latimes.com/environment/story/2019-08-07/renewable-energy-storage-los-angeles
