Nick Butler writes well researched and well informed blogs for the energy section in the FT and is always an entertaining read.
In this piece he explores how energy storage is going to transform the way we generate and consume electricity. It’s a theme mirrored by other seasoned commentators who all predict the end of the energy grids as we know them.
