Stanford’s Ultra-Cheap Batteries Are Ushering in a New Age in Energy

A team of researchers from Stanford University has developed a battery using sodium that costs much less than lithium-ion batteries. The new batteries could offer a cheaper alternative to lithium without sacrificing performance. Let’s Get Salty Researchers from Stanford University have developed cheap batteries as an alternative to expensive lithium-ion batteries that could better help us prepare for our renewable energy future. The group was able to create a sodium-based battery that can store the same amount of energy as a lithium-based battery at less than 80% of the cost. Other researchers have created sodium-based batteries in the past, […]
