Energy storage today plays a critical role in multiple facets of life, from the smartphones that keep us connected to the vehicles that transport us. The unifying technology is the battery, a technology with massive breadth of impact; it powers devices with increasingly more demanding loads but can also serve as the primary energy source for an electric vehicle. As mobile applications continuously push for better performance and lower cost in smaller volumes and weights, lackluster improvement in batteries threatens to hold back transformative innovation taking place in markets ranging from electronics to transportation.
This webinar will explore:
- The current status of Li-ion batteries and the impact of limitations in cost and performance in both electronics and transportation
- The shifting landscape for energy storage and how technologies like lead-acid and Li-ion may win or lose share in transportation
- A roadmap for next generation energy storage beyond Li-ion
