Elon Musk Has Built The World’s Largest Lithium Ion Battery
Business Insider reported that Tesla’s (TSLA) Elon Musk has won a high-stakes bet after he successfully constructed the world’s largest lithium-ion battery and completed the task under 100 days. The bet was placed on Twitter with Atlassian’s Mike Cannon-Brookes in March.
When fully charged, the batttery is expected to hold enough power for 8,000 homes for 24 hours, or +30,000 houses for an hour during a blackout. The project is part of a $550 million plan by South Australia to guarantee energy supply following significant blackouts.
