Reducing Renewable Intermittency

Here is a project that proves an important technology talked about for decades.  It is significant in that it is a way of doing solar that makes it dispatch-able.  Those who oppose renewables contend that it is not suitable as base load, it is unreliable so there will always be need for fossil fuels and / or nuclear.  This is an example of one of the many ways intermittency is being addressed.
