The Future of Batteries

About this video

The importance of more than 40 years of research on lithium-ion batteries was recognized with the 2019 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. As the world is moving toward electrification and the greater use of renewable energy, the question that researchers have been looking to answer is what is the next lithium-ion battery? In this session, three early career researchers who are helping to shape the future of battery research will provide their perspectives on solid-state batteries. The talks will address crucial aspects of developing solid-state batteries, ranging from materials discovery to operando characterization. This webinar aims to highlight innovative work that has the potential to shape the direction of future battery research and development.
