WISE PUBLIC LECTURE WEBINAR | BATTERY FUNDAMENTALS & APPLICATIONS AS ELECTRICAL VEHICLES: STATE-OF-THE-ART AND FUTURE TRENDS
Batteries are the backbone of today’s Energy Storage and our Electrification future. Li-ion batteries play a major role in the energy storage scope as one of the leading battery technologies. In this seminar, we will focus on li-ion battery technical aspects covering the different structures, Chemistries, and cell formats for such technology, besides other technical important topic as battery manufacturing. As Li-ion battery safety is a major topic, we will also highlight the thermal runaway process and the design corrective measures taken to enhance battery safety over its lifetime including highlighting the major important Aging mechanisms and root causes.
At the end of our talk, we will share the future trends of battery storage development beyond li-ion batteries, highlighting key future technologies such as Sodium-ion batteries, and other hybrid battery system technologies. As a closure, we will cover an overall comparison between battery vs Hydrogen storage.
