3rd International Next Generation Batteries 2013
November, 12-13, 2013 -
Breakthroughs in new battery chemistries, novel electrode and electrolyte materials, system integration for a vast array of mobile, portable and stationary applications, from micro medical devices to high-energy/high-power automotive, have paved the roadmap for an emerging market with unlimited potential. Will lithium-ion batteries deliver on the promises of the power, energy, cost and safety in commercially available energy storage systems? Or maybe the future lays somewhere beyond lithium-based chemistries? Our panel of leading experts in fields of battery materials, systems design and integration, manufacturing and commercial applications will look into emerging issues underlining this pivotal time in the battery industry.
"Development of Hydrogen-Bromine Redox Flow Battery for Grid Energy Storage "
LBNL has been working on a high-power redox flow battery (RFB) by utilizing hydrogen and bromine to develop a cost-effective electrochemical system for storing grid-scale energy. In this study, we will report on technical approaches, which have been taken to develop the RFB. It will be described in detail how cell components and structure could be optimized to minimize the losses associated with kinetics, ohmic and mass transfer properties, and therefore leading to the first-in-class RFB performance. We will also report on the cyclic performance of the RFB, and especially the effect of operating conditions such as electrolyte concentration, cut-off potential, and current on the cyclic performance. Various diagnostic methods such as measurement of over-potential with open-circuit-voltage (OCV) monitoring cell, analysis of exit gas from cell with a real time gas analyzer (RTGA), and characterization of species cross-over by capillary electrophoresis (or bromide-selective electrode) were utilized to find the proper operating conditions to minimize performance loss and side reactions. This work was funded by Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (contract # DE-AC02-05CH11231) with cost share provided by
Recent significant R&D and engineering innovations in energy storage technologies in general and in lithium-ion batteries in particular combined with significant achievements in safety and reliability have propelled the technology into a position in the marketplace far exceeding recent market survey results. Breakthroughs in novel battery chemistries, novel electrode and electrolyte materials, system integration for a vast array of mobile and portable applications, from micro medical devices to high-energy/high-power automotive, have paved the roadmap for an emerging market with unlimited potential. This 9th Annual Conference in our
4th International Battery Safety 2013
Widely publicized safety incidents, hazardous events related and recalls of lithium-ion batteries have raised legitimate concerns regarding lithium-ion battery safety across various battery systems sizes and applications, from microelectronics and medical to automotive and aero space. Battery Safety 2013 is will address the concerns of battery safety and reliability by exploring a wide spectrum of related topics.
