The potential of electrochemical energy storage in batteries and supercapacitors is enormous, ranging from small sizes for mobile electronics to medium sizes for transportation to large sizes for electric grid storage. Electrochemical energy storage is also the most appealing option for the effective utilization and implementation of renewable energy sources such as solar and wind to establish a cleaner environment.
Understanding, controlling, and predicting the structure and properties of solids and the development of new materials with novel synthesis approaches and enhanced properties have driven the energy storage field for the past three decades. Although the performance level and cost of the current generation of storage devices are acceptable for mobile applications, novel intuitive concepts are needed for next-generation of high-performing electrochemical energy storage systems at an affordable cost with improved safety to penetrate the major new markets.
Design and synthesis of new electrode and electrolyte materials, advanced characterization methodologies including in situ techniques to understand at the atomic and nanoscale the surface, bulk, and interfacial characteristics, and computational analysis to predict materials behaviours and guide the design of new materials are among the main challenges for developing new next generation of high-performance materials.
The International Symposium “Electrochemical Energy Storage Systems: the Next Evolution” will emphasise breakthroughs in materials and energy storage systems for practical implementation. The Symposium will cover advances in electrode and electrolyte materials for rechargeable batteries, including new cell chemistries, novel electrode architectures, in situ and ex situ characterization, advanced computational methodologies, new cell configurations, and system development, along with addressing reliability, lifetime, cost, safety, and environmental issues for practical implementation.
