The UP Experience is pleased to welcome Donald R. Sadoway, the John F. Elliott Professor of Materials Chemistry at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. During his presentation, "The Liquid Metal Battery – The Missing Link to Renewable Energy," the professor known as MIT’s most popular, will discuss the problem at the heart of alternative-energy sources such as sun and wind: how to store the power generated from these sources so it can be delivered to the grid all the time, day and night, even when the wind isn’t blowing and the sun isn’t shining.
Don and his team of students at MIT are currently developing innovations in energy storage, including what is referred to as a battery miracle – an inexpensive, incredibly efficient battery that has caught the attention… and backing… of Bill Gates, whose funding is helping to bring the product to market.
One of TIME magazine’s "100 Most Influential People in the World" in 2012, Don is an entertaining and informative teacher who has authored over 140 scientific papers and holds 16 U.S. patents. His research ranges from metals production and portable energy storage devices to his "liquid battery" for renewable energy applications, and non-lithium-ion batteries for automotive applications.
To learn more about Don Sadoway and his incredible strides in renewable energy, sign UP today for our October 25th event.
