Why Batteries Are Extremely Important for the Renewable Energy Transition?
Show Notes

We're revisiting some of our favorite deep dives with industry experts from past episodes.

A global transition to clean energy is underway.  What technologies will be essential to this zero emission future?

Well, Battery costs have decreased significantly - Lithium battery costs have fallen by a STAGGERING 98% in 3 decades! All the growth and investments in renewable electricity are starting to add up, and now the battery industry is moving at a breathtaking pace.

We speak to Nicholas Yiu and Yen Yeh, two of the most credible voices within the climate tech space.

Recently, Nick and Yen, through their organizations  Intercalation and BatteryBits (Volta Foundation) have published the 2021 Battery Report, which is an accessible overview of the latest battery research, policy and business landscape.

It's a phenomenal piece of work from our brilliant guests, and we at Things Have Changed, highly recommend it.
