Energy storage is a key (and often overlooked) component of clean energy production. Commercialization of new materials and designs within existing form factors is essential to the development of the new generation of high-power/high-density batteries that is necessary for the burgeoning Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) market. As the market grows, it will require proven technology that not only performs extremely well but also guarantees a high level of safety. This presentation will examine how new computational methodologies and commercialized nanomaterial-based solutions will deliver on rapid design improvement and materials innovation in the context of the traditionally sluggish evolution of battery technology. Nanoexa Director of Technology (and inventor on more than forty patents), Sujeet Kumar, will walk the audience through near-term improvements that shatter current industry norms for ecology, safety, performance, power, and profitability.
