Science & Technology section plans to spotlight a new invention with the power to create real change.
This month’s invention is the Tesla Powerwall: a battery that converts and stores solar energy. It can afect how the entire world is powered.
For now, the Powerwall can be applied on a smaller scale. Public buildings that sufer from extreme weather and unreliable energy could beneft from the renewable energy source. Backup generators need electric charge, and are not always reliable.
The Powerwall can potentially change the way we tackle energy shortages during emergencies in the future.
