Opportunities for the future of batteries

There might not be a Moore’s Law for batteries, but researchers and corporations are trying — hard — to boost the progress of battery innovation. There are hundreds of startups, massive battery conglomerates and university labs that are trying to push the battery envelope and create as much power at the lowest cost for these little energy storage devices. I detailed these innovations in a report I wrote for GigaOM Pro (subscription required). Here’s some of the trends from that:

  • A better electrolyte
  • Next-gen lithium ion
  • Beyond lithium ion
  • Manufacturing innovation
  • Power management software
  • Battery business models
