Session Abstract

Limiting global warming requires major discoveries in energy conversion and storage technologies. While rechargeable batteries have reshaped our lives, constant improvements in materials and chemistries of new battery and fuel cell architectures are required to ensure a sustainable energy future. To accelerate progress in materials design deeper insight into structure – performance correlations is indispensable. This symposium builds upon recent developments in energy conversion and storage technologies towards materials that can reliably provide the necessary power and energy covering a wide range of applications, from portable electronic devices, via e-mobility to heavy duty stationary modules. A number of topics will be covered ranging from the design of new materials to the engineering of energy storage and conversion devices. In particular, the symposium will target experimental and computational approaches oriented to materials design using in particular advanced structural characterization methods like in-situ/in operando measurements and structural determination using synchrotron or laboratory X-ray or neutron powder diffraction.
