Stanford researchers extend the life of lithium ion batteries 30%.


The big deal is that this isn't due to some lab tech that will take years to implement - it's a charging protocol that can be added to battery chargers' software.

Due to sodium batteries being heavier than lithium, they are ideal for stationary large-scale energy storage, freeing lithium resources for mobile applications.

Meanwhile, we're (literally my place of work) building a hydrogen electrolyser at one of our wind power sites to make H2 for the local bus fleet :| who cares whether it makes a lot of sense if the German government is happy to subsidize projects like this with millions of taxpayer money.
