Our energy network is extremely vulnerable; we are completely depended on energy generated by power stations, one attack on those and we lose our electricity and with that most of our power.

Moreover, more energy is generated than is directly needed, the surplus is then wasted. Nineteen year-old Mei Nelissen has, together with a research group, come up with the Blue Battery, a device which enables us to store and generate electrical energy safely and more sustainable.

Nineteen year old Mei Nelissen is studying Biology. In her final year of high school, she did a research project with Lotte van der Velde and Eline Jagtenberg and in cooperation with Wetsus, which has led to the invention of The Blue Battery.

The Blue Battery enables us to store and generate electrical energy safely and sustainable. Therefore sustainable energy can be even more sustainable and we can all have power over our driving force: electricity.
