DISCUSSION: As science and society continue to evolve more and more with time, there continue to be newer, and more advanced break-through achievements made with respect to both energy creation and energy storage. Having said that, the essence of creating and distributing energy-based resources is the ability for a team and/or organization to maximize the natural fruits of a readily renewable and readily accessible natural resource which can be tapped into for the purposes of natural energy production. Google's parent company "Alphabet" is working on a project by which wind and solar power is stored before being converted electricity to thermal energy. From there, heat is stored in molten salt, and cold is stored in a vat of liquid antifreeze solution. When the power is needed, the hot and cold energy are converted back into electricity by a heat engine. Furthermore, electricity in the system is produced most efficiently in situations where there is a wider temperature difference between the hot and cold vats. Hence, scientists both in this company and other innovative companies based all over the world are working to vastly improve the ways in which energy is both created, distributed, and utilized on a global scale.
