Posted on Leave a commentPosted in energy density, hydrocarbon, lithium ion, wind

This obviously brilliant atomic scientist wrote a long and well researched article on the potential energy densities of energy storage v. hydrocarbon. He points out that there is much more energy per volume in hydrocarbon fuels then there can be in batteries or other forms of advanced storage. “The maximum theoretical potential of advanced lithium-ion […]
