Startup Thinks Its Battery Will Solve Renewable Energy’s Big Flaw

Aquion, the startup that developed the battery, has finished installing its first commercial-scale production line at the factory, and is sending out batteries for customers to evaluate. It recently raised $55 million of venture capital funding from investors including Bill Gates.
