Calculating the carbon footprint of grid-scale battery technologies

Photo courtesy of Gizmag.comSolar and wind power pose a challenge for the U.S. electrical grid, which lacks the capacity to store surplus clean electricity and deliver it on demand. Researchers are developing grid-scale storage batteries, but the fossil fuel required to build these technologies could negate some of the environmental benefits of new solar and wind farms, say Stanford scientists. Read more at: http://phys.org/news/2013-03-scientists-carbon-footprint-grid-scale-battery.html#jCp
