NOTE FROM TED: TEDx events are independently organized by volunteers. The guidelines we give TEDx organizers are described in more detail

More electric vehicles are on the road than ever before, but unfortunately, this could quickly stress the power grid. To avoid resorting to burning more coal and further damaging the environment to support the demand, we must embrace renewable energy. Unfortunately, the renewable energy sources are intermittent, creating a gap in energy production. But it is possible to store that energy for later use, and that's where the future of energy storage comes into play. Dragonfly Energy CEO, Dr. Denis Phares addresses the need for safe, powerful and cost-effective renewable energy storage and what he is doing to take the future of energy storage to a whole new level. His Reno, Nevada-based company, Dragonfly Energy, has designed and assembled Lithium iron phosphate storage systems for RVs, boats, and stationary storage systems in the USA for years and is now looking to the future, bringing non-flammable, high-grade renewable energy storage to the market with Dragonfly Energy's proprietary and patented solid-state cell technology. Dr. Denis Phares first earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Physics from Villanova University and then went on to obtain his Ph.D. in Engineering from Caltech. After working as a tenured faculty member of the Aerospace & Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Southern California, Phares began his work in advancing renewable energy technologies and followed his dream of making an impact in green energy storage, an area that had virtually stagnated the advancement of widespread renewable energy adoption. Phares is now the CEO of Dragonfly Energy Corp. and leader of the company's innovation and research initiatives focusing on developing and advancing Dragonfly's revolutionary technology. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
