Batteries: The Positives and Negatives of America’s Energy Future

Steve Christensen writes on RealClearEnergy about batteries and the future of America’s energy.

The C3 Take
  • The cost of batteries is projected to drop in the next 10 years, meaning battery-powered electric projects will be more economically feasible.
  • As more of our power becomes reliant on batteries, we must find more sustainable ways to produce them.
  • Through recycling and securing trade agreements with lithium producing nations, we can produce a reliable supply chain for battery production.

“We are in the midst of a battery revolution, one in which batteries will eventually power cars and trucks for thousands of miles on a single charge, provide reliable, carbon-free electricity to the grid after being charged by renewable resources, or even power airplanes on short to medium-length flights. And those are just the more obvious applications.”
