Why do batteries not last forever?  Energy storage, at scale, is currently considered the last required innovation for the transition to a fossil fuel free energy economy.  But how far away is 'cheap' and 'everlasting' energy storage technology?  Columbia Global Centers | Mumbai invites you to a talk by Professor Daniel Steingart, which will explore the current state of energy storage, what gaps exist in meeting worldwide requirements, and what opportunities exist to accelerate adoption and performance of energy storage devices.
