Is there any current applied research or anticipated future for?

A couple of difficult issues come to mind. Every site/location offers different opportunities for capturing, storing and delivering energy. A site may offer solar or wind potential, or not. Residents may or may not be willing to accept slightly higher outage rates so each PLan for a development may differ from the next considerably. The other issue is the cost to design and integrate, test, and deliver a sound, efficient system that works as a whole. This cost would be considerable, and builders generally avoid additional cost centers on their projects, as competition is tough and the additional costs hurt their competitiveness. Yes,they have a new "value-added" component, but many buyers will fear the risk of uncertain or unreliable power sources. I have not read about anyone trying to accomplish a similar goal, yet, but the time may come.
