Myth 2 – Energy storage is expensive
Myth 3 – We can meet rising energy needs with traditional generation capacity alone
Myth 4 – Energy storage can’t support base-load energy generation
Myth 5 – The centuries old model of centralized energy generation with distribution to the edge of the grid will continue as it is
Myth 6 – Batteries currently fade after too few charge cycles to be viable for grid-scale energy storage
Myth 7 – The Internet of Things (IoT) represents a near-term solution to curbing energy demand
Myth 8 – We can reduce our carbon emissions, which are a major contributor to climate change, with renewable power alone
