Science Figured out: Sustainable and more powerful batteries


Science Figured Out lures young scientists out of their familiar lab or office and places them in front of a camera with a clear assignment: tell the general public about your research in a clear 3-minute pitch!

Some researchers connected to EnergyVille also took part.

Sustainable and more powerful batteries

Smartphones, laptops, electric cars, … We simply cannot live without batteries. But did you know that in five years’ time the demand for batteries is expected to be 15 times greater than today?
