Colloquium: “Science and Technology Drivers in Batteries for Renewables Energy & Mobility Applications” – Wednesday, October 24, 2018 at 4:00 PM

Dr. Ilias Belharouak, Distinguished Scientist and Group Leader at Oak Ridge National Laboratory
George P. Williams, Jr. Lecture Hall, (Olin 101)
Wednesday, October 24, 2018, at 4:00 PM
(Colloquium sponsored jointly with WFU Dept. of Chemistry)

There will be a reception with refreshments at 3:30 PM in the lounge. All interested persons are cordially invited to attend.


The worldwide growing integration of renewable energies and electric vehicles will require massive deployment of energy storage solutions. The aim of this seminar is to discuss the potential of batteries to stabilize the grid whilst storing energy, understand various types of batteries used to store energy and address battery life expectancy, and how it can be maintained for maximum efficiency. A case study centered around a 250kW/500kWh lithium-ion battery coupled with a 200kW PV-plant represents an opportunity for investigating the cycling conditions and aging behavior of a grid-connected Li-ion battery. In a second part, the application of the LNMO/LTO cell chemistry will be discussed in the light of recent results which anticipate the potential deployment of this lithium-ion battery in both grid-storage and electric vehicles.
