The vision of the Electrochemical Energy Storage Program is to conduct basic and applied research to provide high-energy-density, high-power storage devices with long cycle lives.
The goal of the Electrochemical Energy Storage Program is to:
- develop novel synthesis and processing of nanomaterials with unique microstructures and properties for Li-ion batteries, Na-ion batteries, metal-air batteries, redox flow batteries, and supercapacitors;
- conduct density functional theory (DFT) calculations and molecular dynamic (MD) simulation of electrodes and electrolytes;
- conduct research on advanced materials and battery characterizations; and
- develop grid integration of electrochemical energy storage systems.
