New Battery Technologies Can Help Your Business

There were two important advances in battery technology that could have an influence in the business world in the near future. The first one was presented by QuantumScape, a start-up backed by Volkswagen and Bill Gates. They announced that “solid-state” batteries that are created for electric vehicles, will be more efficient than batteries that have been made previously. These batteries are better in all the important ways: they hold more power, they will charge faster, and will last longer.

The second breakthrough in battery technology comes from a team of researchers at the University of California, San Diego together with California-based company zPower, and involves a rechargeable battery that is flexible and made of silver oxide-zinc. The new battery is five to ten times greater energy density than what is considered state of the art now. It is also easier to make. Most flexible batteries today need to be manufactured under strictly sterile conditions, in a vacuum. This new battery can be screen printed under normal laboratory conditions. It can be used in electronics requiring flexibility and also for wearables like soft robotics.

Any business that uses electricity should be interested in the advancement of battery technologies. It is expected that batteries will be one of the fastest trending products in the coming decades. Businesses will benefit from the science-driven improvements which will solve the problems of storing and using energy for a huge variety of products from cars to wearable robotics, machinery to phones. The age-old problem of finding and harnessing power is coming closer to its ultimate solution, allowing businesses to run with less interference, more reliability, and more flexibility.

David Michery and Clean Transportation

Clean transportation provides a solution to the challenges of air pollution and unhealthy vehicular emissions. It’s a cause that many car companies are making a priority. David Michery, CEO of Mullen Technologies, a company that manufactures and distributes eco-friendly cars, is a leader in the field of clean transportation.

“The congestion and pollution we have been experiencing have been issues across the globe, it is not our problem only,” says David Michery.  “We have therefore prioritized studying innovation overseas in order to develop high quality and efficient solutions.” Cutting-edge, holistic solutions to the clean air crisis include manufacturing electric vehicles that use state of the art battery and energy technologies.

Although many consumers feel strongly about clean transportation, they find themselves bound by their budgets: many electric vehicles cost an upwards of 100,000 dollars. Electric vehicles tend to be luxury cars; driving an electric car is often viewed as a status symbol, reserved for the wealthy.

David Michery recognizes this reality and is pioneering a novel concept: affordable, clean transportation. “We are uniquely focusing on clean tech at an affordable price,” says Michery. “Clean transportation is good for everyone and should not become a luxury.”

David Michery, with his strong background of success, is uniquely poised to champion the cause of clean transportation. After working in the music industry for 27 years and producing more than a dozen gold or platinum records, Michery now channels his energies into the cause of clean transportation.

As the affordability of electric vehicles increases, clean transportation can become a reality.
