With the start of this century’s roaring 20s upon us, there’s a new prohibition in town. This time it extends beyond the borders of the United States, with the global community demanding the transition from carbon-emitting combustible fuels to renewable energy resources. Governments large and small are declaring a climate emergency and investing heavily in both climate change mitigation and adaptation. However, like the prohibition on alcohol in the 1920s, outlawing a resource that is used in abundance has incredible challenges.
Despite the urgency, it’s no longer headline news that nearly 60% of all emissions come from transportation and electricity generation collectively. Policy makers are taking notice, concentrating on regulations and innovation investments in these two sectors. The solution: battery storage.
