Though the obstacles to a clean energy economy are largely political , one particular technological challenge to this goal is the expense and capacity of storage batteries. The sun may shine strongly on a home rooftop, but if there is nowhere to store this energy until peak-demand in the evening, the system is not effective. However, technology may be catching up to demand. While the Tesla Powerwall hopes to be part of the solution, a new method of manufacturing lithium batteries, pioneered by MIT researchers and Cambridge-based company 24M , may cut production costs in half and open up enormous opportunities for renewable energy.   Read the rest of Lithium battery technology breakthrough could totally change solar power Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: “clean energy” , “wind power” , 24M , battery , battery storage , battery technology , lithium batteries , lithium battery , MIT , renewable energy , renewable energy technology , Solar Power
