What is the best way to store energy to use at a later date?

    That is a very important debate right now. We could store energy in super low-friction flywheels, by converting water to hydrogen and oxygen, in super capacitors, in underground pockets of pressurized air, in biogas production, batteries or more. Likely it will be mixture of those technologies on a site-per-site basis. Right now, storing energy is likely easiest in an efficient battery or a combustable carrier, like a biogas, because they’re mobile, they can be produced in number of ways and are often less complicated to make and deploy than some of the other mechanisms I’ve mentioned. We use the stored energy in gas, oil and coal now. But we did not make the deposits that created those sources of energy.
