How a new battery revolution will change your life. “We have this handy fusion reactor in the sky called the sun,” Tesla's Elon. Musk mused,- “You don’t have to do anything. It just works, shows up every day, and produces ridiculous amounts of power.” We need to be able to store that energy captured by solar panels. CSMonitor.com
