Energy Storage: Research Directions, Applications, and Limitations

AIChE Webinar
Originally delivered May 23, 2012

Energy storage technologies have recently been gaining attention, spurred on by the shift toward sustainable energy. Simply put, energy storage is the ability to transport energy through time; energy produced at one point in time can be stored and then used at a later point in time. This ability has the potential to revolutionize the energy landscape. The scope of energy storage is broad, as many sectors of the energy industry, such as transportation fuels, consumer electronics, and the electric power grid, can be greatly influenced by it.

However, as with the development of any new technology, energy storage faces many barriers. In response, many researchers are focusing their time and effort to address these challenges. This webinar aims to explore a sampling of energy storage research.

Topics to be presented are computational materials design, flow batteries, and hydrogen storage for automotive applications. The focus of these presentations will be to introduce listeners to the most recent developments in these fields of research.
