Re: battery innovation
There are all kinds of improvements to Lithium Ion Batteries being studied and developed in university labs and R&D facilities all over the world, particularly in the US, China, and the EU. There are also some truly revolutionary solutions that go beyond Lithium. Energy storage is the only thing holding back wide-scale use of solar power. One of the problems is that these newer solutions will require totally new manufacturing methods, and they all depend on the rapidly developing science of nanotechnolgy. It really is only a matter of time. I wonder of Elon Musk's giant battery factory will be able to adapt when the time comes, as it will, and probably sooner than later.
