Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries have had a profound and revolutionary impact on the energy storage market since their launch in commercial products by Sony Corporation in 1991; they have become significant in powering both small and large, high energy and high power applications - from smart cards, through implantable medical devices, portable communication equipment, hybrid- and all-electric vehicles to stationary energy storage for emergency back-up and for controlling fluctuations in the electrical grid. This presentation will highlight the challenges and opportunities of a lithium-based energy storage economy and, more specifically, recent progress at Argonne National Laboratory in advancing lithium-ion battery electrode materials by strategic design.
