    Mega-battery plant to come online in Sheffield
    Facility run by E.ON, to be followed by many more, will help UK grid cope with fast-growing amount of renewable energy

    I was going to post the link to the story but The Guardian won't let me, it;s a secure site so just Google The Guardian and request this story "Mega-battery plant to come online in Sheffield".

    @Ted Richards
    Very interesting and different direction from trending usage here in the U.S. We generate the juice via wind, let's say, transform the voltage as necessary, and dump it into an already loaded grid. Their idea seems to be to store the generated energy for use during either peak demand periods, or at such times as Mother Nature intervenes negatively (no wind!).

    @Ken Anderson Thank you for the working link. You know, I guess, that I eat this stuff up!
