I prefer super capacitor because they have infinite or one million charge/discharge cycle durability. Batteries only get 1000 charge/discharge cycle durability at best. So super capacitor need to be replace less often.

Using hydroelectric damns is a much more sustainable solution which can respond to changes in energy consumption. Water is pumped up into the damn when there is energy surplus (electrical energy to gravitational potential energy) and drained out of the damn in an energy deficit. These are already in common use and pose a better environmental stance than batteries whilst being a source of electricity at the same time, however large investment is required to build these damns so development is difficult.

oversimplification of a complex problem. just because you have battery does not mean u can have battery powered airplanes. the more battery you put in the plane the heavier it gets, unless battery density drastically improve, battery powered airplanes will never be realistic.

Is the guy talking in the video stupid ? He says at the end that it's not crazy to assume that 20 years from now, 50% of our energy will come from nature. It might not be crazy but it's stupid. Because fossil fuels do come from nature. It's a natural process in which bacteria breaks down dead things and with the aid of high temps and pressure, we get fossil fuel.

why dont you make a video on recycling the bateries!?
Arjunsinh Chauhan (1 месяц назад)
But what about the battery production? The lithium is only available in CONGO africa, and there are many report which said to there is heavy child labour behind lithium production. Right now the battery pricing is increasing as per demand. Look's like bloomberg videos are not powerful as their reports on financial.

Not one word about using hydropower as batteries?! If surplus energy was used to pump water back (up) to lakes, the potential energy could then be converted back to electric energy at any time.

What if instead to develop battery technology, we develop the WiFi energy technology? If our solar-energy based technology become more efficient and supported by an efficient WiFi energy network around the world, it will last 24hrs all year round.

This sounds amazing. But we still have a long way to go before we achieve that, so don't lay back and relax just yet, in fact now is the time to push for this future even harder.

Battery chemistry has improved over the years to address toxicity, environmental, density, cost, charging, and weight. We've moved from lead based battery to lithium ion, and more recently carbon super capacitor. Carbon super capacitor solves all the listed problems: it is very light, you can store 100kWh weighing only 5lbs, the cost can dramatically be decreased to $1.00 per kWh, the material is recyclable, and the charge/recharge cycles will be in the 10,000's.

Prediction: 20 years from now, half or more of the cars on the road will be EV's with Autonomous Driving.... Battery technology will have decreased the size or increased the power per lb / kg of battery to ridiculous amounts compared to today. What am I basing this on? The past 20 years of advancements in Battery Tech and The Willingness of Governments to Jump on The Bandwagon... I see the whole as on an exponential curve, that by 2028/30 we will see a tipping point, where FF and ICE along with their supporters, are on a financial and resource based slide to the Bottom Extinction along with the Horse by 2050... That's not to say we won't have car races or have kids who want to be old fashioned mechanics (have a son and grandson who want to be blacksmiths) but they will be niche markets and occupations, relegated to obscurity for the majority...

Do not forget that there is not enough raw material on the earth to replace everything that runs on oil, coal or gas in the form of batteries. What has happened is a very important drop in the standard of living. This level is directly related to the production of energy. The production of wind and solar panels is extremely polluting and very difficult to recycle. The major problems pollution, climate change, famine, revolts, diseases, overpopulation, energetic rupture, and human greed.

The problem with conventional chemical batteries is the necessity for mining of metals like lithium, which in the long term, would not be a sustainable practice. Waste management of batteries is crucial as well. Really hope to see breakthroughs in graphene batteries.

The US government gives subsidies to clean energy sources so that they are able to run even when it demand for power is low in the day. The best thing that can happen is we store clean energy in batteries then utilize that power during peak demand hours. Nat gas plants could still run at optimal capacity and stored renewable power would help make power cheaper for everyone

Patrick Thibaut (6 месяцев назад)
In concentrated solar powerplants, they can run molten salt trough the pipes in stead of water, and use a heat exchanger to make steam. When there's too much heat they can pump part of the molten salt to an isolated tank and run that trough the heat exchanger at night: stored solar energy without batteries!

You don't need batteries to keep energy, there're other mechanical ways of energy storage, as simple as pumping water uphill

Why not just send the extra energy to make hydrogen. Then burn the hydrogen to make electricity and you wouldn't even need batteries.
Doug Mcdonell (6 месяцев назад)
This is mixing up two different situations, electric cars and the electric grid. The electric grid needs stationary energy storage like biofuels or pumped hydro. Electric cars need a portable energy store like batteries or fuel cells.

I was thinking that we could use hydrogen and fuel cells. I do not know how efficiant this is tho. But imagine having hydrogen elecrtolys stations and hydrogen tanks to be able to then use them in fuel cells to release the current into the grid

Batteries are TERRIBLE for the environment. But for now are a necessary evil. We need pollution efficient factories a.k.a. none Chinese factories who actually single handedly cause global warming as well as their country itself. The future is bright yet bleak.

Batteries, no way, there is a major problem with their tenure as they do not last longer then 5 years and in computers they last barely two years, becoming a major pollution problem. Poeple can switch to trains, tramways and subways instead as we need to get rid of cars which makes many cities unlivable.

They need to get creative here. Chemical batteries are expensive, but why not use a mechanical battery? For example, use excess power to pump water into a high resevour. Then when power demand increases, just release the water and the pumps become generators that produce power. The same can be done in many other ways as well. There will be a loss of power per Newton's laws, but the same goes for batteries in that it always uses more energy to cuarge the batteries than you will ever get out of them.

I think hydrogen and fuel cells are better. the cost of hydrogen storage is dependent on its container. A sphire has a volume = 4/3 pi R^3 but an area thereby cost = 4pi R^2 so the larger the sphire the cheaper the storage per container. with batteries its linerar.

The car argument is weird to me. How many people actually have a car for more than 10 years? You'd just replace it with an electric one when yours gets old.
sasho54 (8 месяцев назад)
It's sad that people are so heavily addicted to cars. Now everybody is claiming that electric cars are so huge an advancement, that it will solve fossil fuel problem, etc. I think the real advancement would be to break that addiction, not to use cars except for transportation of loads and stocks. Look at the cities - your motion is awfully restricted, you must keep your eye wide open all the time and constantly being aware of not being smashed by a car. And electric cars will make it worse, because you cannot even hear them approaching. That's crazy, people must overcome this childish passion with cars and enter more conscious state.
Patrick London (8 месяцев назад)
I think your dreaming. We don't need millions of batteries polluting the world. A better idea might be solar panels placed all around the world. And the world sharing power. Or professor James McCanneys idea of his great wing generators. I'm sure the oil companies have been hiding other energy producing machines.
Eudaimon Dandaran (8 месяцев назад)
But I always wonder about the side effects of battery and solar manufacturing. Where do we throw this stuff away? I'm already trying to figure out the ecological way to dispose of my old laptop battery. Do we have enough of the raw earth materials needed to sustain this source of electricity for hundreds of millions and potentially billions of people?

Surely, Solar energy is the best source of energy for humans in the future.......but, Battery is not the right solution......we need to find a way to convert solar energy into electricity from space, where there is uninterrupted supply 24/7......maybe be a new technology that transmits electricity as electric waves from source to destination place where the waves can be again converted into electricity.....Tesla had such idea back then, so it may be possible in the future!!
Michal Valta (8 месяцев назад)
But Jeremy Clarson said electric cars will die out in 5 years ago... He said that 10 years ago in his Tesla "review". Oh gosh, is it posible it was all scripted and staged, just blatant fossil fuel advertisement?! Nonono, totally no. Not at all! Trust me! Please!!!
David Dowdell (8 месяцев назад)
Only one person commented on the balance of hydropower with wind and solar. If the balance is right, hydropower can be held in reserve and dispatched when wind and solar die down. For jurisdictions that too little or no hydro generation pump storage schemes can store much greater power than electrochemical batteries with less pollution.

Nice but to power europe with solar energy you couldn't grow any plants... it would take up to much space. Nucler power is the best way so far. Yes there is nuclear waste but it's small amout compared to huge waste that is created when you dump solar panel... and think how much land you need for it to have equivalent power.

I like battery products for a lot of reasons. However... Batteries have dropped 80% in price in the last ten years??? You are saying a $100 battery is now $20. A 5X decrease. Examples? We just have to buy a lot more of these products to make them significantly cheaper??? Meanwhile other markets rely on making things cheaper so that people will buy them. There is already a very significant industry in batteries, RE mining etc. Will increased scale have a profound effect on price at this stage?

Elon just knows how to sit on state subsidies. There are many companies in China which provide electric cars or other alternatives and they work in profit. In other side, Musk`s companies operates at a loss and receive subsidies. But everybody admires Musk and talks about him as a superman.

The trouble with batteries, there way too expensive. They are also expensive in terms of Earth resources. The answer - the World is always in daylight somewhere and the wind is always blowing somewhere, so build a global grid.

1. They are already developing NON-lithium batteries that use cheaper materials and more recyclable. 2. If you have excess energy, well why leave it excess? People need heating and cooling and it turns out using a heat pump is most efficient way to heat or cool water. Which can then be used for heating or cooling building or other things. Norway is already doing this. When electricity is cheap (excess) you can heat water and even store the energy that way till needed. There are other uses and ways to store energy then batteries.
