About this event

From mobile phones to electric cars to grid balancing: electrochemical energy storage has become a key enabler in modern technology. The lecture will explain how some of the recently discussed/hyped battery technologies work on a physical and chemical level, e.g., lithium ion batteries, lithium air batteries, solid state batteries, lithium air batteries, and redox flow batteries.
 
It will also highlight why there is no single magic solution that will serve all purposes: some applications demand minimum weight whereas others require minimum space per kWh of stored electricity. 
 
For grid scale, there is an interesting co-existence of centralised and de-centralised storage solutions that operate on different business models. The lecture will highlight the latest development in this field, along with challenges on all levels: improved battery chemistry, sustainable supply chains, circular economy, policy and regulations, grid stability. 
 
Electricity storage comes with huge opportunities for scientists and engineers, and for existing and new companies on the UK and globally.
