Study Finds Wind Power Storage More Cost-Effective than Solar Power

A team of Stanford University researchers have found wind energy can produce grid-scale storage up to three days of uninterrupted power more cost-effectively than storing solar power. This is solving a problem faced when using renewable energy sources especially when the sun doesn’t shine or the wind doesn’t blow.

The team of researchers reviewed a variety of storage systems for electrical grids and found that wind power was the most cost-effective energy storage solution. “Within a few months, a wind turbine generates enough electricity to pay back all of the energy it took to build it,” said study author Sally Benson, a professor of energy resources engineering at Stanford.
