Solid overview on where things are going in the power industry. Two points

i) adoption will most likely be higher in parts of the world where current status quo is irregular power or paying $2/kWh for intermittent supply and there is already an appetite as self fashioned nanogrids (in the form of solar combined w/ diesel generators for homes and offices) already exist

ii) battery/storage cost is unlikely to follow the solar cost curve for microgrid scale use cases and (even if it does) unless we go ‘beyond Li’ to supply most of our needs we’ll have to start tapping Li mining resources that only come into play when Li price doubles, leaving us where we started…

Thanks for covering an oft ignored topic on Medium.
