DOE-backed battery technology promises much faster charging than lithium-ion devices

Jason Plautz of Utility Dive reports on a new battery technology breakthrough.

The C3 Take
  • While important for current clean energy storage, lithium-ion batteries have some drawbacks such as long charge times and safety concerns when exposed to high temperatures.
  • Research from Tulane University, backed by the Department of Energy, has found a potential breakthrough in battery technology that could lead to faster charge times and increased grid reliability.
  • Technological innovations, not excessive government regulations, are leading the way to a cleaner energy future.

“The advances in storage can hold benefits for electric vehicles and other portable electronic devices that need to be charged regularly, but Naguib said they should also boost grid reliability and accelerate the transition away from fossil fuels.”
