Dr. Valerio De Angelis – How batteries are changing our electricity infrastructure

In Making Waves Conversations by Mark Sylvester

How batteries are changing our electricity infrastructure.

Renewables are changing how we make electricity. Electric cars are changing how we move. Batteries invented to power small devices are enabling these changes. We will explore how batteries, electric vehicles, and the electric grid are connected and how they will evolve in the decades to come.
