Title [sv]
Organiska Elektrodmaterial med Hög Kapacitet för Gröna Batterier
Abstract [sv]
Projektet syftar till att designa nya organiska elektrodmaterial (OEM) för energilagring i batterier. OEM har hitintills påvisat förhållandevis för svag cyklingsstabilitet och låg energidensitet för att kunna implementeras i batteritillverkning. Projektet ämnar finna en lösning till den problematiken genom att använda moderna beräkningsmässiga materialvetenskapliga metoder, i kombination med avancerade experimentella tekniker, för att designa och testa OEM med högre stabilitet och lagringskapacitet.
Abstract [en]
The worldwide consumption of energy is increasing in a rapid rate. We need to find new alternatives for our energy mix that are abundant, secure and environmentally friendly. The current prospective solutions involve the integration of intermittent renewable energy sources (e.g. solar and wind) into the grid, the widespread deployment/adoption of electric vehicles (EV) and the development of sustainable systems to power portable electronics. Such a transition to a long-term sustainable energy system relies heavily on the development of suitable electrical energy storage devices. The organic electrode materials are arising as a promising alternative, which can be produced from abundant raw materials and are highly versatile displaying tunable properties that can meet end-user-specific demands. However, there are drawbacks associated with their stability and low energy storage capacity. This research program focuses on the design of high capacity and stable organic electrode materials for the next generation of sustainable battery technologies. This is a joint effort combining experimental and theoretical approaches. One key methodology to be developed is the highthroughput computational materials design machinery (HCMD), which will facilitate the selection of potential candidates from a large materials-library. The successful realization of this project will significantly contribute in the transition to a long-term sustainable energy system in Sweden.
