The disruptive power of batteries

Jun 03 2015
I have just spent the weekend driving the remarkable Tesla Model S. A week ago I caught up with the video of Tesla founder, Elon Musk, presenting the company’s new products, the Powerwall and Powerpack.

I get it now. It’s all about the batteries. The car itself is a big leap forward, for sure, but it’s the batteries that will kill the internal combustion engine and, eventually, coal and gas electricity generation.
