Dr. Ilias Belharouak
Distinguished Scientist & Group Leader
Oak Ridge National Laboratory
Part of the Fall 2018 Graduate Seminar Series
"Batteries for Renewables Energy & Mobility Applications"
The worldwide growing integration of renewable energies and electric vehicles will require massive deployment of energy storage solutions. The aim of this seminar is to discuss the potential of batteries to stabilize the grid whilst storing energy, understand various types of batteries used to store energy and address battery life expectancy, and how it can be maintained for maximum efficiency. A case study centered around a 250kW/500kWh lithium-ion battery coupled with a 200kW PV-plant represents an opportunity for investigating the cycling conditions and aging behavior of a grid-connected Li-ion battery. In a second part, the application of the LNMO/LTO cell chemistry will be discussed in the light of recent results which anticipate the potential deployment of this lithium-ion battery in both grid-storage and electric vehicles.
