The discovery given this year's Nobel Prize in Chemistry is leading the way in the renewable energy sector.

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences awarded John B. Goodenough, M. Stanley Whittingham and Akira Yoshino the prize for their development of lightweight lithium-ion batteries.

Heiner Linke, Professor of Nanophysics at Lund University, tells Radio Sweden how the laureates' research has already affected people without them noticing and how valuable it will be in tackling climate change.
