Scope The transition from the fossil economy to a greener, sustainable economy cannot, however, be realized without efficient energy storage systems. Energy harvesting from renewable sources such as solar or wind offers enormous potential for meeting the current and future energy demands and protecting the environment. Nevertheless, obtaining electricity from the intermittent resources requires the use of efficient storage technologies. Undisruptive transmission of electricity, and its conservation, demands large-scale efficient storage technologies. In addition, improved electrical storage systems are critical for the progress of today’s hybrid electric vehicles, as well as for the plug-in hybrids of all electric vehicles that are forthcoming in the near future. Varied applications require wide range of storage technologies that vary in power and energy ratings, durations, etc. This symposium will focus on both the scientific and technological aspects of various storage technologies. Emphasis will be on design and development of new materials, mechanistic understanding of storage processes, system design and development and existing and future applications. The symposium would provide an excellent forum for scientists and engineers from academia, national laboratories and industry to present the latest findings in various storage technologies. In addition, the symposium will provide a venue for fruitful interaction and exchange of ideas. It would also educate students and researchers in the nationally and globally important area of energy storage science and technologies. Proposed session topics include: Rechargeable batteries such as lithium ion: materials, systems, design and applications Batteries for transportation and portable applications Large-scale electrical storage for electrical grid and renewable energy applications Thermal energy storage: materials, systems and applications Energy storage via kinetic energy and flywheels Electrochemical capacitors: materials, systems, designs and applications Metal-air and other primary batteries: materials, systems and applications Nanostructured materials for energy storage applications Electrode chemistry, kinetics and degradation Novel ion conducting membranes and electrolytes Mechanistic understanding of charge (e.g. electron and ions) transport, interfacial phenomena and modeling theory, design and computational modeling of materials and systems
