报告简介:
Ever-growing energy needs and depleting fossil fuel resources demand the pursuit of sustainable energy alternatives. Accompanied by the development and utilization of renewable energy sources, efficient energy storage has become a key topic. Electrochemical energy storage devices are considered to be one of the most practical energy storage devices capable of converting and storing electrical energy generated by renewable resources, which are also used as the power source of electric vehicles and portable electronic devices. The ultimate goals of electrochemical energy storage devices are long lifespan, high safety, high power, and high energy density. This talk will focus on high-voltage cathodes, high-capacity anodes and solid electrolyte for next-generation rechargeable batteries. Meanwhile the issues and challenges for the key materials in rechargeable batteries will be summarized and addressed.
