A Game Changer for Smart Electrochemical Energy Storage Devices
WHAT IT IS?
Functional electrolyte design will be a game-changer for the field of smart EES devices. Truly smart energy storage has the potential to become a game-changing, key technology in the approaching 4th Industrial Revolution. Research is continuing at a considerable pace, opening the way to power future technology in a manner not currently possible with conventional EES devices. Growth in the smart electronics market has led to strong demand for the development of new, efficient power sources.
Future smart electronics require more than just superior levels of energy storage, though: they also require EES devices that can monitor internal parameters in real-time and regulate and adjust their internal energy storage. Internal parameters include temperature, mechanical properties, and voltage. Power sources also need to be reliable. This is not possible with current EES technologies.
