The Nobel Committee announced today that they awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry Awarded to Developers of Lithium-Ion Batteries, John B. Goodenough, M. Stanley Whittingham and Akira Yoshino share the prize. The developing lithium-ion batteries are the power sources that touched off a technological revolution that gave rise to cellphones and electric cars.
Dr. Goodenough, age 97, gives few interviews. Planet Philadelphia was honored that he chose to give us an interview about his revolutionary new battery and the future of energy storage in 2017.
