Abstract

Since 1973, the energy economy of the U.S. has been changing very rapidly. Our perceptions of the value of energy, and the price of petroleum are very different from what they were just a few short years ago. It is interesting to examine the total energy economy of the U.S., and to consider in which directions the shifts of supply and demand will go. As members of the scientific and electrochemical communities, we ask ourselves where our field can contribute to achieving a more nearly optimal distribution of energy supplies and energy demands, and how can electrochemical energy storage help them mesh in an effective, economically sound manner.
