In this talk, we will present the main electrochemical energy storage devices, with a focus on Li-ion batteries and supercapacitors. After a presentation of applications and key features/performances of these devices, we will try to show an over-view of the next chemistries which are currently under development or in early stage of the research together with the key challenges they are facing, paving the way of future battery technologies.
He is director of the Alistore European Research Institute (www.alistore.eu) focused on Li-ion battery research and Deputy Director of the French network on Electrochemical Energy Storage Source (www.energie-rs2e.com/fr).
Patrice Simon was granted with an Advanced Grant from the European Research Council in 2012 (Ionaces project), to develop research on microporous carbons for supercapacitor applications. He holds the Chair of Excellence from the Airbus Foundation “Nanomaterials for embedded energy storage sources”.
In 2015, he received the Silver medal of the CNRS and the International Award on Nanotechnology International Prize Rusnanoprize2015.
