Meet the Founder and inventor of the next generation grid-level Liquid Metal Battery, Professor Donald Sadoway of MIT. Grid-level means , huge power levels, capable of supporting communities or hundreds, thousands of households.
Examples: A battery 36 inches in diameter and 4 inches thick can produce 4000Watt hours. Or a huge 40-foot shipping container size battery may support the daily needs of 200 households!! The technology is new. Watch for news of its mass production!

Bill Gates Joins LBMC to Commercialize Grid Level Battery
Professor/Dr. Donald Sadoway , named by Time Magazine as one of 100 most Influential People in the World, co-inventor of the Liquid Metal Battery and co-founder of LBMC, partners with BILL GATES and others to commercialize this early-stage GRID LEVEL renewable battery.
LONG TERM IMPLICATIONS OF THIS TECHNOLOGY: LONG HIGH VOLTAGE TRANSMISSION LINES COULD BE ELIMINATED.
