  1. Yep, high energy storage density whilst being provably safe AND economically viable is the holly grail in this business. Although I still reckon more traditional ways of storing demand power (like the recent Snowy Hydro project) have their place in the energy mix for sure. Not all of it can be sensibly held in batteries; although for short term immediate pickup batteries are hard to beat.
