Original Abstract

Storage of electrical energy, which may be produced temporarily in excess, is a challenging problem of modern electrical distribution networks that largely draw power from wind or solar radiation, predictably unsteady resources, which are intermittent due to volatile nature of wind and sunlight. Storage of excess produced energy in electrochemical cells (batteries) is an obvious choice, and perhaps even the most practical method. However, the challenge is to find batteries that would be reliable, widely available, effective and cost-attractive. This article focuses on electrochemical aspect of these backup sources.
