Convection-enhanced electrochemical energy storage
Project team Fikile Brushett with Thomas Carney
New energy storage
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.
