Battery innovation and investment are going to be key if we're going to curb climate change-related blackouts

The impacts of climate change have largely driven efforts to innovate and expand renewable energy resources. The world is producing more renewable energy now than at any time in history and such will continue to be the case each year for the foreseeable future. However, within the energy sector, renewable energy generation is not enough to curb the impact climate change has on humans.
More focus needs to be placed on battery storage, otherwise, 2020's rolling blackouts throughout California and the near failure of the Texas electrical grid in winter 2021 will become the norm. Spring 2021 has already prompted grid operators in Texas and in California during heatwaves to tell customers to lighten electricity demand because of the impact of extreme weather.
