Next-generation Batteries for Electric Vehicles and Stationary Storage Image

NEXT-GENERATION BATTERIES FOR ELECTRIC VEHICLES AND STATIONARY STORAGE

The quest for cheaper, safer, higher-density, and more resource-abundant energy storage has driven significant battery innovations. In the context of materials development for next-generation batteries, organic battery electrode materials that store charge with dedicated redox groups have emerged as an exciting option complementary to inorganic materials and demonstrated unique advantages in novel battery technologies. In his presentation, Dr. Yan Yao will review his group’s research activities in energy storage including a number of case studies. Dr. Yao will emphasize the organic battery materials design in emerging rechargeable battery technologies such as solid-state batteries, multivalent metal batteries, and aqueous batteries. Dr. Yao will also discuss an integrated battery diagnostic platform for structural, chemical, and mechanical characterizations that could provide fundamental insights into the failure mechanisms of solid-state batteries.

20-21 UH Energy Symposium Series: Houston: The Low Carbon Energy Capital - Four Ways Forward: Circular Plastics Economy Image

20-21 UH ENERGY SYMPOSIUM SERIES: HOUSTON: THE LOW CARBON ENERGY CAPITAL - FOUR WAYS FORWARD: CIRCULAR PLASTICS ECONOMY

UPDATE This symposium is being postponed until further notice.
Houston and the Gulf Coast has seen an unprecedented growth of the downstream chemicals and plastics industries over the last two decades, largely driven by the availability of cheap natural gas and natural gas liquids. Globally it had been anticipated that the manufacturing of plastics would grow by as much as a factor of five over the next three decades.
