Symposium EE5—Next-Generation Electrical Energy Storage Chemistries

In order for energy-sustainable and energy-efficient economies to develop, significant improvements in energy storage technologies are essential. This symposium addresses this need by focusing on new and/or emerging materials science and engineering directions which are expected to improve energy storage characteristics, enhance stability, improve safety, and reduce the cost of electrochemical energy storage technologies. The latest solutions for the efficient storage and release of electrical energy will be targeted as we plan to cover the most recent materials developments for high energy and high power rechargeable batteries, electrochemical capacitors, hybrid devices, and related technologies. Highlighted areas include novel materials for electrodes and electrolytes, their synthesis, characterization, and modeling. Particular attention will be given to the topics of new materials development, ion/electron transport, and chemical-mechanical stability of the interfaces and interphases within nanostructured and conventional electrodes and electrolytes.

The development of improved materials for advanced energy-storage solutions for transportation, grid energy storage, and portable devices requires an interdisciplinary approach in which materials science and engineering is integrated with chemistry and physics. We have identified a number of such interdisciplinary topics; invited talks given by leading scientists in the field will introduce each topic, highlight some of the latest developments, and reveal their views on promising approaches which address the critical challenges. Theory and modeling will be an integral part of this symposium. Advanced characterization including in-operando approaches as well as multifunctional and integrated devices will be covered.

Topics will include:

  • Conversion-type cathode materials for Li-ion batteries
  • Materials for chalcogenide batteries
  • Modeling and simulation of materials for supercapacitors
  • Multifunctional and integrated energy storage devices
  • High energy intercalation-type cathodes for Li-ion batteries
  • Anode and cathode materials for non-Li battery chemistries (Na+, K+, Ca+, Mg2+, Al3+, etc.)
  • Interfaces and coatings in advanced energy storage devices
  • Modeling and simulations of conversion-type and chalcogenide cathode materials as well as cathode materials for non-Li, non-Na batteries
  • Materials for ultra-high power batteries and ultra-high energy density electrochemical capacitors
  • Materials, chemistries, and architectures for aqueous batteries and supercapacitors
  • Advanced and in-situ / operando characterization of (non-Li, non-Na) batteries and various types of supercapacitors
