Energy storage is the technology of our time and has become an important topic of interest for both automobiles (transportation) and electrical grid (stationary) applications. Energy storage technologies offer several significant benefits: improved stability of power quality, reliability of power supply, etc. In recent years as the energy crisis has intensified, energy storage has become a major focus of research in both industry and academia. Some of the key challenges remain as follows:
● New materials and electrolytes development to improve energy storage performances.
● Safety and reliability.
● System designs and architectures to reduce the cost of energy storage systems.
● Novel energy storage technologies that are cost comparable and high safety.
Having these challenges in mind, ENTEC aims to support energy storage industries with state-of-the-art research on advanced/beyond Li-ion batteries, high energy density storage materials and systems, supercapacitors, hydrogen storage/fuel cell, and thermal storage.
