Description

Discover the worlds biggest battery and explore how inventors are creating other giant batteries to help power the world sustainably.

--

As of 2020, the worlds biggest lithium-ion battery is hooked up to the Southern California power grid and can provide enough power for about 250,000 homes. But it's actually not the biggest battery in the world: a pair of lakes are. How can lakes be a battery? Explore how inventors are rethinking what a battery can be, and how these surprising solutions could help us achieve a sustainable future.

Directed by Lisa LaBracio.
Animation and art direction by Lusa M H Copetti & Hype CG.

In partnership with Bill Gates, inspired by his book "How To Avoid A Climate Disaster": http://bit.ly/PlanForZero
