I wish there would have been a cost comparison as well. Not only to the steel for rail cars and that infrastructures maintenance, but the impacts of continued mining of coal, or drilling for oil/nat gas. Only seems fair if youíre going to examine the effects of mining for RE construction.

I think a lot of money is being spent and will continue to be spent on storage technology in this century. Iíve come across multiple sites referring to needing 5-7x installed capacity relative to needed capacity due to RE variability and vast and efficient storage is the only real way to offset that. I look forward to seeing this all happen in my lifetime.
