Energy Storage for a Changing World

Director’s Special Colloquium Celebrating Argonne’s 75th Anniversary

Energy storage offers new horizons for generating and using electricity, for moving people and goods locally and across long distances, for avoiding the worst consequences of climate change, and for adapting to the consequences we cannot avoid. This colloquium honoring Argonne National Laboratory’s 75th Anniversary examines the roles energy storage will play in shaping and responding to a changing world.
