Development of efficient energy storage strategy is one of the key steps toward the success of the emerging electric vehicle industry (including buses, trams…) and the large-scale energy storage systems for the renewable energy utilizations. Current lithium-ion battery chemistry has served as one of the most important options, however, the limitations with respect to the energy/power density, cost and cycle life still need to be addressed. Similarly, improving the energy density of supercapacitors is one of the key challenges for this technology. Novel approaches encompassing new battery / supercapacitor chemistries and concepts are thus needed. This session will present state-of-the-art and innovative approaches in developing new materials and chemistries for energy storage applications.
