In recent years energy storage has emerged as a key ally for the renewables industry, allowing excess production to be stored and sold when market conditions are favorable.
And while the addition of batteries to renewable projects was originally a costly exercise, a rapid fall in the price of lithium-ion battery technologies now means solar and wind plants can be equipped with significant levels of energy storage and still remain competitive.
This reduction is expected to continue, with Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables forecasting an 80% drop in battery prices between 2017 and 2040.
