But this does illustrate problems with batteries, which greenies want to be the solution to carbon problems.

From what I've read previously on the 787 the entire plane was designed indirectly because of green energy, cut weight to decrease fuel consumption.

It's composite material to save weight and the electronics replace hydraulics to lighten it. Lithium-ion batteries are lighter than other types and can operate at higher voltages.

Maybe not precisely but it seems indirectly it is though I could be wrong.
