NOTE FROM TED: TEDx events are independently organized by volunteers. The guidelines we give TEDx organizers are described in more detail here: http://storage.ted.com/tedx/manuals/tedx_content_guidelines.pdf More electric vehicles are on the road than ever before, but unfortunately, this could quickly stress our power grid. To avoid resorting to burning more coal and further damaging our environment to support the demand, we must embrace renewable energy. Unfortunately, our renewable energy sources are intermittent, creating a gap in energy production. But it is possible to store that energy for later use, and that's where the future of energy storage comes into play. Dragonfly Energy CEO, Dr. Denis Phares addresses the need for safe, powerful and cost-effective renewable energy storage and what he is doing to take the future of energy storage to a whole new level. His Reno, Nevada-based company, Dragonfly Energy, has designed and assembled Lithium iron phosphate storage systems for RVs, boats, and stationary storage systems in the USA for years and is now looking to the future, bringing non-flammable, high-grade renewable energy storage to the market with Dragonfly Energy's proprietary and patented solid-state cell technology.
