Public and political support for offshore wind developments can therefore be undermined.

3 Ways Energy Storage is Fueling the Renewables Revolution

Article | March 9, 2020

Across our country, there is an increased focus on renewable energy sources to combat the extreme impacts of climate change, and address the problems caused by a growing demand for power from an aging grid.
