The Future Of Energy Storage Beyond Lithium Ion

Over the past decade, prices for solar panels and wind farms have reached all-time lows. However, the price for lithium ion batteries, the leading energy storage technology, has remained too high. So researchers are exploring other alternatives, including flow batteries, thermal batteries, and gravity-based systems.

CORRECTION (March 14, 2020): At 12:53 we incorrectly identify the size of the energy storage market. Overall, the energy storage market is predicted to attract $620 billion dollars in investments by 2040.

The Future Of Energy Storage Beyond Lithium Ion


  1. Maybe few parts and:
    1. Water electrolysis
    2. Dividing H from O
    3. CO2 from air obtaining
    4. Methane producing by using Fischer-Tropsch synthesis 😀

  2. Maybe for bigger power storage it would be more efficient (especially for wind turbines) to use big high-pressure air tanks?

  3. If we ever get serious about reducing emissions and environmental impact we go nuclear. NP requires a fraction of the resources of W&S nor does it need backup.

  4. without bills, can in 30 years 300 000 usd credit to take up and this in venture to turn 5 years turn back… from no costs exist not better.

  5. Technology is getting better every month as development and research are also continuing to grow. However, one cannot simply cut-off fossil fuels before a clear solution is viable.

  6. Limit to make cars very important and keep same distance to move for stop and slow and make room for traffic between rather than the main road move closer to jam the road way

  7. We know when vehicles move they make wind as we stop under the sun we have free electric or we make electric that save from battery able to run electrical generator to run endlessly to store electric in battery. There is no need to stop for recharging

  8. While engine running so we make the electrical engine small to charge battery as for stop while it is running it able to charge battery

  9. One we able to make energy the energy are there forever because we make batteries to save them and use those batteries to run electrical generators to produce more energy

  10. We are looking for sufficient the plan make cars can not be out of control as well as human population can not control just like price stock overprice and under price

  11. We must instruct them fast slow and stop same distance rather than move closely t9 each other between or same as same lane then jam the road way but make more vehicles for sale out control

  12. Or nation to nation to make monies out of control by make houses and building and road way and then overwhelm human population productive
