Seems lots of investors and leaders are recognizing the power of long duration storage-- the successful implementation will cause a reworking of all of our assumptions on grid market mechanics and open new possibilities. This is the right direction to be focusing resources

Either that, or -

It seems lots of investors (the leaders are the investors) are recognizing the possibility  of convincing a gullible public that powering an electrical grid with a combination of intermittent renewables and batteries is something other than a farfetched fantasy.

I'll be willing to consider possibility when I see verifiable proof of one country, one community, one factory, even one microgrid powered entirely by solar, wind, and batteries. No grid connection, no diesel/propane generator out in back.

I've got $100 that says one doesn't exist. C'mon, renewables advocates, put your money where your mouth is! Any takers?

I didn't think so.
