The missing link to renewable energy: TED Talk by Donald Sadoway

What’s the key to using alternative energy, like solar and wind? Storage — so we can have power on tap even when the sun’s not out and the wind’s not blowing. In this accessible, inspiring talk, Donald Sadoway takes to the blackboard to show us the future of large-scale batteries that store renewable energy. As he says: “We need to think about the problem differently. We need to think big. We need to think cheap.”

Donald Sadoway is working on a battery miracle — an inexpensive, incredibly efficient, three-layered battery using “liquid metal.” From the TED Talk Website

About Editor

A semi-retired industrial physicist who began learning about websites and sharing his know-how on www.temperatures.com in 1997. It has been the leading technical website on temperature sensors and is ranked number one (and two) by Google in searches on "temperature sensors" for several years. In 2001 it became a full-time business and it's been expanding ever since to more than a dozen unique websites. They are about measurement technologies, practices, devices, standards, meetings, publications, news and education in industry, science and commerce and the Web. Along the way he has managed to help two family members and two technology groups plus his local political committee establish and develop their own websites and he provides technical and even content backup for them, too.
