Source? The only ones I know about are the redox flow batteries which are meant to supplement grid power during peak usage (night time).

There's there still called google you know. It's pretty much common sense that China would be investing heavily in just about every energy storage solution known to man. They have some of the largest pumped hydro, compressed air, redox flow, thermal storage in molten salt, gravity batteries, lithium ion, green hydrogen projects going on.

I was hoping for a comprehensive fact sheet like the one here

Believe it or not Google can be crap to do research on.

China does have something like that, but it's mostly in chinese. That's the issues with searching for info on chinese systems.

So which source were you asking for?

The claim that excess renewables + storage is the future?

If you have any amount of understanding in the energy sector, it's fairly obvious that's the future.

The biggest difficulty is being able to predict the weather in terms of providing the storage generation to overcome the intermittent nature of renewables - but there are already projects around the world working on that technology that are being completed and tested every day.


That's a very very quick Google, there's a lot more information on the WA governments Western Power distributor working in the renewable electrical grid space
