Electricity storage is in vogue. We are on the brink of an energy storage boom and it is being predicted by the likes of Tesla, large electricity suppliers and, recently, my grandmother. However, the current hoopla notwithstanding, is not actually mankind’s first foray into electricity storage. We are essentially standing on the cusp of the Read more about Energy Storage – Why all the fuss now?[…]
There is an old joke that has Bill Gates allegedly comparing the computer industry with the auto industry.
Gates says: “If General Motors had kept up with technology in the same way the computer industry has, we would all be driving $25.00 cars that got 1,000 miles to the gallon.”
Although Gates probably never actually made that comparison, at least not on the record, there is definitely a very intriguing question underlying the witticism.
Why indeed has computer functionality improved exponentially, while, at the same time, the price of computers has dropped so dramatically? Why does there seem to be a correlation between lower prices and increased computing power? And, most relevant to the nascent energy storage industry, could the same forces be acting on the price and functionality of energy storage?
