This story is very informative, but it's technical and contains a lot of industry information that might not be relevant to casual readers. I don't want to fault the article for that, though. It describes in detail a new supplemental wind power technology with important potential to consistently manage the power supply, possibly reducing reliance on fossil fuels.
Informative story on combining wind power with compressed-air energy storage plants to provide clean energy round-the-clock. This factual report provides a good overview of this promising new technology, citing a number of credible sources and pointing to four interesting experiments under way.
Especially when compared to the far more balanced Salon article just reviewed, this is a clearly persuasive and ill supported support for wind power and the enormous infrastructure investment that would be required to support that technology.
