One of Time Magazines 100 most influential people in the world, MIT Professor Donald Sadoway, describes the development of a new revolutionary, cost effective, and very durable grid storage liquid metal battery which will revolutionize the electric grid and solve energy storage problems for renewable energy such as solar and wind energy. The presentation was made at the February 18, 2015 MIT Enterprise Forum of Texas program in Houston.

The next few decades will herald a global change in energy production. The age of renewables requires more than just photovoltaics and windmills: it needs storage systems in an unprecedented volume. However, conventional techniques of storage fail due to the high investments or the low efficiency. This appears to be a stumbling block for the desired change to renewable energy.
His proposed hydraulic hydro storage system gives us a chance to store thousands of GWh at low cost and low environmental impact. The simple yet riveting idea is to lift a rock the size of a soccer stadium using established technologies thereby storing energy. Due to the fact that underground rocks are practically unlimited, the global change to solar power can continue.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
If we ever want to get off fossil fuels and start using renewable energy, we’re going to need a revolution in energy storage. That means batteries. Bigger, stronger, and just better, ok? And maybe, just maybe, we’ll finally be able to realize humanity’s dream of confusing the ghost of Thomas Edison!

This tiny house was built for Nate and Jill by Skosh in Chippewa Lake, Ohio. The tiny house’s most noticeable features from the outside is the bump out on the fork of the trailer that serves as a storage room for Nate and Jill’s outdoor equipment like bikes, camping gear, things like that. The house (as you’ll see in the video) is just plain cozy. Thanks Nate for the guided tiny house tour! Your home is lovely.
