Battery Development: Electricity Storage of the Future Last Updated on 2018-01-21 11:03:55 BATTERY DEVELOPMENT: Electricity Storage of the Future We have long relied on batteries for powering small electronic devices.  However, battery technology has evolved far past the AAAs we still use, and hold significant promise for transforming our present into a sustainable future.   Among the many places that battery technology is changing is for electric and hybrid vehicles.  For example, research is underway that shows semisolid fuel cell batteries hold significant advantages over current lithium ion battery designs – once the bugs are worked out.  Should today’s research be fully implemented, lithium ion batteries could hold over ten times as much energy.  Even further in the future, when battery development moves past lithium, the potential is greater still. The implications of advanced vehicle battery designs are potentially... More »
