Energy tech on hyperdrive

The innovations in energy storage are coming so fast and furious it is hard to keep ‘current’ (little humor).  Science-fantasy concepts are becoming reality every week in things like graphene batteries (graphene is an eco-friendly, sustainable, sheet of carbon atoms in a honeycomb lattice pattern with astonishing attributes, pictured below) and Supercapacitors, also known as EDLC (electric double-layer capacitor) or Ultgraphene-structure-img_assist-305x216ra-capacitors that can store previously unimaginable amounts of energy.  The race is on hyperdrive.  Very exciting.  See,  Australia co LWP takes 50% stake in graphene battery technology:

“When compared to a Tesla 85-kWh lithium-ion battery for electric vehicles, the aluminum-graphene-oxygen battery offer 15% more power, while occupying 54% less space and being 30% lighter. Its life is nearly twice as long and the estimated cost is about 50% below that of li-ion batteries, says LWP’s press release.”

Link all these on-site storage tools into inter-continental grids that continually absorb and disperse all forms of sustainable, clean energy far and wide, and the question becomes, ‘what energy problem?’
