Renewable energy sources, Energy storage -- Technological innovations -- Evaluation, Electric power production


Since there is a huge growth in population gradually there will be a substantial increase in power consumption. Apart from the conventional energy generated there is a need for another energy sources which are renewable. But renewable sources of energy are not produced at a constant rate as it is a nature’s part. So in order to capture the energy produced at peak time and use it collectively to grid and plant locations is a major issue. This project explores the potential storing technologies for future usage of these renewable energy technologies. The analysis is covered through a multi perspective view of the storage types, such as a quantitative analysis: hierarchical decision making model, qualitative analysis: literature review and expert review. The above analysis were applied to the best standing or most prominent technologies and were selected to determine the optimum strategies in deciding which storage technology is the best.
