Steve LeVine - The Powerhouse: Inside the Invention of a Battery to Save the World

Thursday, February 5, 2015 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

What will save the world? One candidate is the lithium-ion battery, which will decrease the use of fossil fuels and stimulate the economy of whichever nation develops it first. The U.S., along with China, Japan, and South Korea are all working toward this end, and LeVine, former foreign correspondent and now a New America Foundation fellow, Washington correspondent for Quartz, and author of The Oil and the Glory, chronicles two years of the intensive effort at a secure federal lab near Chicago.
