Battery research is essential for meeting the growing demand for reliable, efficient, and cost-effective energy storage solutions. Research is focused on improving battery performance, safety, and lifespan while reducing their environmental impact.
One key area of research is the advanced characterization of cell components, including electrodes, separators, and electrolytes, to optimize battery design and performance. Battery recycling is another critical area of research, with the development of new technologies to identify and extract valuable materials from used batteries for reuse and re-manufacture. Energy storage research is focused on finding new and improved ways to store energy efficiently and safely, with a focus on different materials and chemistries and the use of advanced technologies such as flow batteries and supercapacitors.
