Ultimate Energy Storage


Effectively integrating renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power into the electrical grid will require better large-scale energy-storage devices. The ultimate energy-storage device will combine the capacity of batteries with the power of capacitors and will be the linchpin of the green grid. Experts at the forefront of the materials and nano research that’s aimed at building these devices explain why making batteries more like capacitors, and vice versa, is crucial to our energy future.
