S21: Advanced Materials and Technologies for Electrochemical Energy Storage Systems



During the last two decades, research groups in Asia, Europe, and North America have developed cathode and anode materials and electrolytes that can be used in electrochemical couples that store more and more electricity per mass and volume. As a result of these advances, lithium-ion battery technology has evolved beyond the consumer electronics industry and is now making serious inroads in the transportation industry; still, challenges at the battery system level remain with regard to energy, power, cost, life, and safety. Also, the technology is slowly making inroads in other industries such as stationary storage systems for wind farms and solar plants. Improvements in materials design,
electrodes architecture, and cell chemistry are required to extend the life, enhance the safety, and lower the cost of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. A deeper understanding of the battery materials/property relationship, electrode/electrolyte interface phenomena, and cell failure mechanisms is also needed to face these challenges. The search for advanced high capacity electrode materials and the implementation of the very challenging lithium sulfur and lithium-air batteries will be necessary to overcome the energy density shortfall in current lithium-ion batteries. Abstracts are solicited on the fundamental and applied aspects of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, lithium-sulfur and lithium-air
batteries, and beyond lithium technologies. This symposium will allow for discussion amongst the many groups involved in the development and use on these technologies.
