EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
After the discovery of electricity, effective and efficient methods have been sought to store energy for use on demand. Over the last century, industries which work towards the effective storage of energy have been evolving and adapting to change in energy requirements and advances in technology.
Energy storage systems help in providing various technological approaches to the effective and efficient management of electricity in order to create a more resilient energy infrastructure and maximize cost savings to consumers.
Biofuel is a form of fuel produced under biological carbon fixation (such as anaerobic digestion and agriculture). Biofuels are in various forms and are used widely in achieving energy storage needs. Biofuels are a known source of renewable energy because of its great environmental advantages, which includes reduced greenhouse gas emissions. The form of biofuels is categorized into three generations, with each generation containing various fuels.
• First Generation Biofuels: This generation of biofuels are generally gotten from arable crops. They are different from the second generation biofuels in the sense that they are derived from plant dry matter (biomass), agricultural residues and woody crops. First generation biofuels are referred to as the original
