The success of the offshore wind sector will depend on storage systems

There are various reasons why the focus on storage of electrical power is so intense today. Two aims high in the list of reasons for this intensity are the  levelling of power output from inconsistent power sources and the simplification of power transport from source to a central storage hub or end user. Being able to save energy during periods of high output to be released into the grid when output drops is the key to the success of a dependable, sustainable large-scale energy source. The success of the offshore wind sector will depend on storage systems if it is to replace fossil fuel alternatives on a large scale and an effective grid system is a necessary requirement to make any storage system successful.
