Here are a couple of the important events of the week along with just some awesome articles I’ve come across :
1) The clear winner – an insect with gears!!
2) A recent article in Energy and Environmental Science discussing energy storage prospects for the two kings of renewable energy: solar and wind. It appears that it is cost-effective to build grid-scale battery system to store surplus energy from solar cells for later use, but not for wind turbines. I hope to explore this in more detail in a post soon.
