Energy storage continues to evolve as advanced materials and battery architecture are developed to address the need for portable, on-demand energy. Goals for improvements in these devices include life extension, energy density, safety, cost reduction, and charging speed. Phase I of the project focused on the need for cell-level improvements in cathode battery materials, advanced cathode coatings to reduce material waste and speed production, and novel cathode architectures. For Phase II, the project team will continue evaluation of novel materials for lithium-ion anodes, with a goal of maximizing the performance benefits while reducing manufacturing cost.
