At the dawn of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, here are Dénes Csala, Lecturer in Energy Storage Systems Dynamics at Lancaster University and Sgouris Sgouridis, Associate Professor of Engineering Systems and Management, Masdar Institute bringing us the good news in this article published by The Conversation . We reproduce excerpts not only for their obvious narrative but also for their dissemination character to which we would like to think we are contributing. According to Renewable Energy, this is generated from natural resources such as the sun, wind, and water, using technology which ensures that the energy stores are naturally replenished.
