Convention Enhanced Electrochemical Energy Storage

Fikile Brushett with Thomas Carney

Modern enclosed rechargeable batteries are generally limited in performance because inactive components occupy a majority of the battery weight and volume, leading to lower energy densities and higher costs.  This project aims to develop a new energy storage concept - a convection-enhanced rechargeable battery that overcomes the diffusive transport losses, leading to higher energy density, lower cost, and safer operation.
