Today, we take the easy availability of electric power for granted. From the phone in our pocket to the car charging in our garage, the modern world would be unthinkable without electricity and the batteries we rely on to deliver portable power.

But the technology we rely on has its roots in the incredible work of scientists over the past 300 years. From the battery to the electric motor (which celebrates its 200 year anniversary in 2021), breakthroughs made in previous centuries continue to inform our technology today.

Join Paul Shearing as he tells the story of how the ability to store energy is continuing to shape the world we live in.
