Argonne National Laboratory invites you to attend the next installment of the OutLoud Lecture Series.

It is being held as a hybrid event. You can attend in person or virtually.

When Hurricane Ian recently hit Florida’s southwestern coastline, many residents lost electricity, but one town did not. The community of Babcock Ranch maintained power through the storm, in part, because it is 100% solar powered supported by batteries. These batteries store electricity for later use so power is continuously supplied, even during inclement weather events and electrical outages. The town provides an excellent example of the role battery innovation can play in powering clean energy and mitigating climate change hazards.

Join us for a conversation with four members of Argonne’s world-class community of scientists who advance the lab’s comprehensive battery research program.

Special Guests

George Crabtree
Director, Joint Center for Energy Storage Research

Venkat Srinivasan
Director, Argonne Collaborative Center for Energy Storage Science

Jessica Dunham Macholz
Materials Scientist, ReCell Center

Susan Babinec, Moderator
