The Shum Show: Charging Up the Future

Program Summary

This week, the Shum Show dives into batteries! While it certainly presents challenges, climate change also opens doors to new opportunities for innovation and development in technology, and batteries are one of the most powerful new technologies, potentially paving the way to a greener energy system—on the road and on the grid. In a small way, the release of Tesla’s new Model 3 marks a milestone for bringing renewable energy onto American roads, but battery technology as a field, has a long way to go, and Greta Shum, Climate Central’s Multimedia Journalism Fellow, is excited to see what's on the road ahead.
