Exponential battery power
Posted: 21 August 2017

This battery breakthrough from Ionic Materials could be the black swan that brings in a new energy paradigm. We've seen an exponentially declining cost for solar power, but the bottleneck has been costly and heavy batteries. This new battery technology uses a solid rather than liquid electrolyte, making new, denser, safer designs possible, using more efficient and cheaper materials. If a seasoned tech guru like Bill Joy thinks it could be a game-changer, then it's got a good chance. Toyota is also looking at these battery materials for future electric cars. This is what's needed for the energy internet to get going!
