How to store energy for consumption peaks?

Borås, Showing the way for thermal-energy storage - Veolia

Since the 1950s, the Swedish city of Boras laid the groundwork for a sustainable city, notably through the gradual implementation of virtuous energy models that enabled them, among other things, to store the energy from its biomass and incineration plants. In this way, Boras was able, without using fossil fuels, to meet the peaks in the city’s heat consumption during harsh winters.
