English term or phrase: flatten the cost curve
"The variability of wind during the day costs a ton of money. If you can actually match your forecasts by dispatching wind, you can save wear and tear on power plants" and save on contracts pricing, Bryan said. "Storage [of wind energy] should be able to {flatten the cost curve} ."

使成本曲线平直/将成本控制在稳定的水平
Explanation:
flatten the cost curve 的直接翻译是“使成本曲线平直”,意思就是说是成本保持在稳定的趋势(至少是没有大的升高),不完全光指降低成本,所以我觉得还是保留愿意比较好,翻译为“使成本曲线平直”,或“将成本控制在稳定的水平”。
