Clean Technica

One such shift is energy storage, and technological development and financial investment has kept up to pace with the need, so far.

Renewable energy storage systems a market opportunity for lithium
Resource Investing News
North York is the site of Canada's first community energy storage (CES) project. The Electricity Storage Association defines CES as utility-owned "modular, distributed energy storage systems... at or near points in the utility distribution system that are close to residential and business end users."
