Wind, solar, geo-thermal, tidal, and biomass are all here in Alaska, in abundance. However, one challenge to integrating renewable energy into the grid is what to do about the inherent variability of renewables. One Alaskan alternative energy expert has uncovered the solution — The Eklutna Lake Pumped Hydro Project.
Alaska is rife with alternative energy potential. One challenge to integrating renewable energy into the grid is what to do about the inherent variablity of alternative energy. What do you do when the clouds obscure the sun and the wind stops blowing? A battery. You need a really big battery. Kerry Williams has discovered an elegant and uniquely Alaskan solution to leveling the varibility of renewables on a massive scale.
