I'm sure we are doing that too, at least at the academic research level (I know Stanford has grants for battery research). Tesla has leveraged many government
You might be right; there are definitely closet skeletons on other top players that have been allowed to remain locked away.
Yeah, I didn't read the link, but I agree with this. It can obviously get misused, but it's a good idea. If it's not profitable, but we need it, then
Battery Technology would be a better investment than power sources. With good batteries, it opens up a lot of options for other types of energy.
The answer to that question isn't possible if you don't accurately assess the true costs of wind energy. That was the point of the study, to get an assessment
I'm not trying to be critical or obtuse, but, until you know how even the high priced wind energy compares to our current energy methodologies you don't
