The inventions of American scientist Stanford Ovshinsky have arguably put the "green" into auto technology, paving the way for the development of the world's first electric car and the popular hybrids of today. The NiMH battery he invented offers a clean-energy storage solution with record durability and double to triple the capacity of nickel-cadmium batteries of the same size. Besides being at the heart of the eco-tech revolution, this battery is also widely used in consumer electronics.
