We live at a time with a global population that has an emerging desire for more power at their fingertips, and a more socially conscious population demanding less reliance on fossil fuels. The result? A market with limitless potential. Furthermore, quantum leaps in technology related to wind and solar energy, consumer electronics, electric vehicles, etc. has created a demand on batteries that is higher than ever.
The energy storage market will continue to grow at record pace, with more pervasive, complex energy storage systems being at the forefront of leading edge energy-related technological advances. And the costs associate with energy storage systems will stabilize and become more predictable, leading the way in overcoming existing cost challenges. I believe that ultimately battery life will become perpetual and there will be little to no dependence on fossil fuels.
