ORGANIZING INSTITUTIONS



BEYOND LITHIUM ION XI 

JULY 24 - 26, 2018

DOUBLETREE BY HILTON

CLEVELAND, OH

SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKER
DR. JANET KAVANDI

Significant advances in electrical energy storage could revolutionize the energy landscape. For example, widespread adoption of electric vehicles could greatly reduce dependence on finite petroleum resources, reduce carbon dioxide emissions and provide new scenarios for grid operation. Although electric vehicles with advanced lithium ion batteries have been introduced, further breakthroughs in scalable energy storage, beyond current state-of-the-art lithium ion batteries, are necessary before the full benefits of vehicle electrification can be realized.

Motivated by these societal needs and by the tremendous potential for materials science and engineering to provide necessary advances, a consortium comprising IBM Research, NASA Glenn Research Center and five U.S. Department of Energy National Laboratories (National Renewable, Argonne, Lawrence Berkeley, Pacific Northwest, and Oak Ridge) will host a symposium July 24-26, 2018. This is the eleventh in a series of conferences that began in 2009. This is a unique forum focused on the future of energy storage technologies for transportation in the ground and in the air. The main themes are (i) reviewing groundbreaking technical progress, (ii) exploring future directions, and (iii) understanding critical challenges impeding progress. Leading researchers and manufacturers will discuss critically necessary materials, diagnostics, scaling, and manufacturing issues associated with better performing energy storage devices. Through this open-format dialogue, the organizers aim to accelerate innovation, reduce costs, and improve the safety of advanced, electrochemical energy storage concepts and systems “beyond lithium ion.”
