Architected electrodes – from computer to battery

Recognition: NWOVeniScientific

Description

Large-scale energy storage is essential to accelerate the integration of intermittent renewable sources. Electrochemical technologies, such as redox flow batteries, are promising but elevated costs hinder commercialization. Forner-Cuenca will design and synthesize novel electrodes with architected microstructures. These highly organized structures strongly enhance the performance of electrochemical storage systems. He uses a combination of computer simulations and experiments to do so.
