The Future of Safety Science: Electrochemical Safety and Energy Sustainability
Batteries, and other electrochemical energy storage systems, power our lives and grant us freedom in our energy use. As with any engineering solution, they have trade-offs. For instance, lithium-ion batteries require intensive resource extraction, but they also facilitate renewable energy storage that is lightweight, occupies less volume and provides long run times and power for the required lifetime of the device. As sustainability becomes an increasingly pertinent consideration, how will we engineer our energy storage? What is the future of electrochemical energy? Join the conversation.
