Storage
Capacitors were first invented in 1669 and have been made a fundamental part of electric applications since American scientist, Michael Faraday, determined the nature of capacitance and electricity.

Lithium-based batteries have limited lifetime cycles due to parasitic reactions that occur every time the battery is discharged and recharged. If kept in a 100% charged state, this parasitic reaction increases, further decaying the battery life. Super capacitors achieve 100X the cycle life of a lithium battery because there is no such reaction in the capacitor discharge/charge process. Since the parasitic reaction does not exist, super capacitors can be kept at 100% charge indefinitely with no degradation of life.

Balancing Authorities (BAs) hold reserves to balance discrepancies between forecasted and actual load within the operating hour. These “flexibility” reserves are in addition to the spinning and supplemental reserves carried against generation or transmission system contingencies.

Chemical batteries, in a word, are Toxic. There is nothing environmental about them from the mining, to the leakage, to the disposal. Throughout their life-cycle they have terrible impact on the environment.
