Losing Power? The State of the Global Race for Batteries to Power Electric Vehicles and Modernize the Grid
As the auto industry shifts toward electric vehicles and the electricity grid draws more energy from variable renewables, high-capacity, high-performance and affordable batteries are becoming one of the most important areas of technological innovation needed to reduce carbon emissions.
