The Current Energy SituationStorage is an integral part of every man-made system we have. We have food in our pantries, fuel in our car gas tanks, and water in our water towers to meet our needs on demand. Man’s greatest machine is our mass network of electricity and grid, but it does NOT have storage built in. Which means, it is not only how much, but when we use electricity that is important. Electrical supply and demand must perfectly balance every minute of every day; standby electric capacity must exist to instantly ramp up to the highest possible peak demand at a moments notice, with reserve capacity of ten to fifteen percent in case demand is under estimated or mechanical breakdown occurs. If we fail to meet even a moment of this growing demand, we have blackouts or brownouts that paralyze our business economy and threaten the health of our families.
