First principles for development of novel hybrid electrochemical energy storage and conversion systems

Grant


Scheme


  • Discovery Projects

Abstract


  • The project aims to conduct the most critical basic research on novel electroactive materials for high energy storage and conversion. Keeping Australia competitive requires affordable energy and a clean environment. Electrochemical energy storage and conversion devices could revolutionalize how we power our vehicles, homes and offices. We will apply first principles theory to pre-screen electrode materials for electrochemical energy storage and conversion, and then follow up with extensive experimental investigations. It is expected that novel hybrid power systems combining lithium-ion batteries and supercapacitors will be developed for a wide range of applications, including cellular communications and hybrid electric vehicles.
