In this Donald Sadoway speech, he introduces the technology behind being able to store renewable energy in the future. As he points out, today's nuclear plants cannot respond efficiently enough to the growing demands and use of electricity. While sustainable energy created by the sun and wind is an instrumental component of the solution, these technologies alone cannot guarantee unlimited energy supplies.
Donald Sadoway and his team of researchers at MIT are working towards creating the world's first-ever battery designed to store renewable energy. These batteries are being created using materials derived directly from the earth and being manufactured through extremely inexpensive methods that don't harm the earth or deplete its resoruces.
While the technology is highly advanced, Donald Sadoway believes that his research will transform the way humans live in the future, providing both energy security and sustainability.
