Energy storage is the foundation for the transition to a carbon-free future. Accelerating the transition depends on developing high performance batteries that are safer, cheaper, and cleaner than what exists today. Getting all three has been a challenge. Until now. This session will outline the limitations of existing battery technologies and introduce a new type of battery based on a new zinc technology that offers the energy of Li-ion but at a cost more like lead-acid and safer than both.
