Energizing the Future is designed to cover recent breakthroughs and my own personal thoughts on energy storage and generation. As my primary focus in research is batteries, I will start the blog off with an overview of battery technologies, starting with the Volta cell and progressing through to the present day, and some of the more recent and exciting advances in battery chemistry. I look forward to contributing to this community and hope to have my first content blog up by the end of the week.
