Wild Card's description 
One of the most significant shortcomings of renewable sources of energy is their vulnerability, instability and low concentration. This in turn leads to utilization of back-up energy sources and makes the whole process of energy production costly and inefficient. However, a revolutionary breakthrough in storage of the energy from renewable sources would fully compensate their persisting instability.
