Remote locations, such as islands are often ideal sites for renewable energy generation from wind, waves or solar. Due to the variability of this generation, it is not possible for these locations to continuously supply local demand solely from local generation. Coupling this variable generation with the Carbonclean energy storage system allows energy to be stored during times of high local supply, and used to meet demand when local demand outstrips supply. This offsets the need for expensive oil or diesel generation, and allows these locations to meet local demand from renewable sources.
