Nova episode “Chasing Carbon Zero” features Yet-Ming Chiang

The PBS program interviews the DMSE professor and alum Billy Woodford, about their startup's iron-air batteries, which can store renewable energy for 100 hours.

DMSE Professor Yet-Ming Chiang talks to reporter Miles O’Brien in an episode of the long-running science program titled “Chasing Carbon Zero,” which premiered Wednesday night. Through Form Energy, the startup he founded with DMSE alum William Woodford, Chiang is aiming to close gaps in renewable energy availability when there’s no sun or wind. The company’s iron-air batteries can store electricity for several days—up to 100 hours, he says. “This is something that just a few years ago was considered impossible.”
