G8: Advanced Batteries and Supercapacitors for Energy Storage Applications

Batteries and supercapacitors are two important energy storage devices. Batteries store electrical energy by conversion into chemical energy while supercapacitors store energy at electrode/electrolyte interface. There are several concepts available for batteries and supercapacitors, representing multi-billion dollar industries. The state-of-the-art battery and supercapacitor systems are not able to meet the requirements for energy-efficient use in transportation, grid and commercial technologies. Both storage technologies seek new concepts in materials design to overcome their current limitations of performance, cycle life and safety. More critical insights are required in terms of advanced material compositions and structures including surface/interfacial reactions to produce next-generation electrode materials enabling higher energy densities, higher power densities, ultra-safety and longer cycle life of batteries and supercapacitors.

This symposium will explore novel energy storage advanced materials and technologies that are critical in making the current energy storage technologies more effective in the near future. Sessions will focus discussion on fundamental, modeling, mechanisms, materials design, screening, electrode architectures, diagnostics, materials characterization and electrode/electrolyte interface characterization of the following energy storage devices.
