  • Description

  • Speaker/s

The Nobel committee stated in awarding the 2019 Chemistry Nobel Prize to John Goodenough, Akira Yoshino and myself “They have laid the foundation of a wireless, fossil fuel-free society, and are of the greatest benefit to humankind.” It is now time for all of us to take action. Energy storage, and in particular electrochemically-based storage, is critical in enabling the electric economy, just as it was for enabling the communications revolution. Lithium batteries have played the key role to date, but electrochemistry is also essential to the success of a clean hydrogen economy and to the attainment of a cleaner mining industry, one that would be based on electro-reduction rather than carbothermal processes. I will discuss the present status of storage and in particular of lithium batteries and the challenges facing us to invent the next generation.
