The biggest challenge with renewable energies is that they are cyclical. Wind don't blow in a constant manner and the sun don't shine all day long. That means we need to store the excess energy of these resources while the wind is blowing and the sun is shining. In other wards, we need batteries and capacitors to store this energy. Guess who helps designing these energy banks?
