    With Australian Partner, Boulder Ionics Looks to Improve Batteries

    Building better batteries is one of the biggest challenges in cleantech—if not all of tech. Experts believe more efficient and stable energy storage systems could make electric vehicles cheaper and safer, allow the military to power vital equipment, and create ways for utilities to store excess energy they generate. Boulder Ionics, a startup based in Arvada, CO, is taking up the challenge, along with a partner in Australia, following a licensing agreement announced Wednesday.
