Startup makes battery that may solve energy crisis

Aquion, a startup tech company, has developed a new kind of battery that just might make solar power a sustainable option for long term use. The company is now sending out batteries for customer evaluation and has finished installing its first commercial-scale production line.

The thing to know about this new battery is that they could allow the grid to accommodate greater amounts of intermittent renewable energy, therefore allowing villages to use solar power all day long. The problem is, of course the cost, but not only are Aquion's batteries great for sustainable living, they're free of pollution, which solves the problem inherent in using natural gas plants.

For a more in-depth look at these batteries, check out the MIT Technology Review.
