Energy Storage
Argonne’s researchers are constantly working to develop transformational energy storage systems to enable and enhance electric-drive vehicles and a green-energy grid.

Currently, Argonne focuses on developing more robust, safer, and higher-energy-density lithium-ion batteries and the processes to manufacture them. In the next phase, we will develop storage materials beyond current lithium technology to dramatically increase storage capacity and power densities for electrification of the transportation sector.

Argonne researchers will also simulate the future power grid, fed by renewable energy sources, and will work to design storage systems to balance the load and secure the system.

These efforts range from basic materials research to prototype device and systems development, and ultimately, to assist industry in making large-scale changes at the ground level.
