Hope to see the report on this event very soon. I also have great interest on how the energy storage device is advanced. With batteries, frankly I don't think it is the solution for EV.

As a further note, lets not bother talking about the 99.99% of academic researchers who say they've discovered the next thin-film capacitor energy storage mechanism, whereby they give some hand-waiving physical basis, and then show marginally impressive results. Where is the hard science going? Clearly it has not been in energy devices for quite some time (at least not capacitors).

It would be interesting to see if Straubel addresses what is state of the art in terms of energy storage devices and their relationship to electric vehicle design. Are electrochemical double layer capacitors a viable alternative to traditional batteries? Why or why not? Can fundamental improvements in energy storage devices improve the prospects of large-scale, low-cost electric vehicle production? How can improvements in energy-device design and their implementation unlock electric vehicle potentials which have been lying in wait? These are interesting questions, perhaps they have already been answered.
