Wind and solar power have the potential to reduce the growth of greenhouse gases and slow the progression of climate change. But since the sun doesn’t always shine and the wind doesn’t always blow, the big hurdle in expanding the use of renewables is the lack of cheap and efficient storage of that energy. That could be about to change.
