Low-carbon grids need longer-duration storage, but few technologies have succeeded at scale. Here's the current roster of best bets.

"This will supply a sizeable amount of our lithium needs."
Update on my cabinet of LiFePO4 batteries, how they have been working and when you can buy some yourself.
Panasonic aims to "reduce its reliance" on Tesla.
Sandy Munro talked about Tesla's key near term technology. He indicates that Panasonic shifting to provide 4680 batteries will make it far faster to ramp 4680.
I have wanted to get solar panels for a while but I didn't think it was worth it. But prices have come way down, and I also wondered if I could do it myself. This was one of my most challenging projects yet, but so rewarding!
Don't buy batteries until you watch this! Which RV or boat battery is best? We ran laboratory-controlled tests to determine the best RV battery type by power and cost. This video takes a look at lead acid vs lithium batteries, how much power and e

We are tearing down a giant lithium battery that came out of a Volvo car. This came out of an EV (electric vehicle) or a hybrid vehicle. It's a very impressive piece of engineering. Ben is using this battery to power his house with solar panels an
