SYSTEMS ENGINEERING APPROACH TO NANOSTRUCTURING POROUS ELECTRODES FOR COMPACT CAPACITIVE ENERGY STORAGE

Grant number: DP140102624 | Funding period: 2017 - 2018

Completed

Abstract

This project will develop a new systems engineering approach to fabricating porous yet densely packed electrodes with high ion-accessible surface area and low ion transport impedance. This will lead to new-generation compact electrochemical capacitive energy storage systems that can combine high energy density, fast charging/discharging rate and long cycle life. The success of this project will facilitate future large-scale adoption of renewable energy and many other new emerging technologies such as portable/wearable electronics, electric vehicles, and energy regeneration systems.
