To break the Wall of affordable clean energy for all, materials are the key. Up to 80% of the cost of an energy solution is due to its constituent materials and can take 20 years to reach commercialization. MAPs are a multidisciplinary technology built on robotics, high performance computing, and AI, to accelerate the development of inexpensive, “green” materials for clean energy by a factor of 10. This approach will lower the cost and time required to achieve the 2°C Paris Agreement goal.
