Cowboy, good article and I would think that Duke Energy would be not far behind in seconding. I disagree with Nextera Robo saying that renewables will only good for about 75% of the market do to battery size. The renewables market is still young and I recently read an article that said the ITC incentives should continue for R&D in the market. Batteries will continue to gain in capacity and life cycle, there are new technology batteries just coming to market and others in R&D not far behind.

I agree Griffin. There are announcements everyday about new solar farms big and small. These batteries will continue improve as time goes on. We were a little early to the party but I am patient, and believe these stocks will come around. I’ve been busy with work and haven’t had a chance to add much here lately. I read all you posts, so thanks for that. Sometimes I think its just you and me here ! …Cowboy

South Korea fire: ‘Small failures shouldn’t lead to major issues’, DNV GL says:

Lithium battery makers are including ALL types of batteries in their stories about fires, when clearly vanadium and Zinc flow batteries are not to blame. Interesting politics at work.

Interesting, I wonder how much is politics and how much might be StorEn Technologies (posted above) solution for putting flow batteries on the grid. I didn’t even think there was a problem with flow batteries on the grid, what with the huge battery being built in China, but StorEn seems to have a solution and Li-ion could lose market share rapidly. The battery for storage market seems to be moving, finance, incentives, cost, technology, are all going in the right direction.
