    Advanced Batteries Can Help in a Polar Vortex

    The US Midwest is experiencing some of the coldest temperatures in modern history. In addition to rendering millions of people throughout the region with no power, extremely cold temperatures introduce several challenges to conventional electrical infrastructure. Certain types of advanced batteries can help solve these problems. Lithium ion (Li-ion) batteries are able to discharge with minimal efficiency losses over a wide range of temperatures. And several companies have built their battery businesses around providing energy storage system solutions that can operate in extreme environmental conditions.
