This is another of those simple thinking idea. That hopefully lets you set generate new concepts.
The rationale goes as follows. Since a thermal insulator is associated with energy and I assume a much better insulator would allow you to store much more energy. Then why not apply this to a battery. Here you want to store chemical energy.
So the idea is to use a ?chemical insulator to store much more energy.
As light can shine through chemicals. Could light enhance chemical energy storage?
This makes me wonder. What if you can create a evolutionary process for energy storage. That is. You apply forces that acts with the principle of natural selection which then acts on the quality aspects of every part of the system. To get a strong healthy battery. I mean. Could light as a force be used to the batterys advantage?
