Amprius: Cutting-Edge Battery Technology


In the video below, the young CEO of a high-tech start-up called Amprius, Chinese-born Yi Cui, talking about his background (Ph.D. from Harvard, currently a professor at Stanford), but, more importantly, providing a summary of his passion: batteries built around nanotechnology and other concepts in cutting-edge materials science. His command of English is imperfect, but I don’t think anyone can say that about his insight into what’s to come, when he smiles and tells us, “After you get renewable energy, you have to store it. It’s about the potential for society.”

Last week, ex-U.S. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu (photo above) joined the board of directors at Amprius, a move that should have us all thinking carefully about the future of energy. Great things are happening all around us.
