Energy storage continues to emerge as one of the most active and potentially impactful areas of research and development. Storage is key to improved electrical resilience, reliability, and accessibility while opening the door to critical electrification and decarbonization efforts. Meeting the dynamic needs of evolving electrical grids and increasing electrified technology spaces, though, will clearly exceed both the technical capability and manufacturable capacity of currently market-dominant lithium-ion batteries. Our 2023 event will focus on technologies that promise impact beyond lithium-ion batteries, featuring a keynote session, followed by a lively program of invited and submitted talks focused on new materials, emerging chemistries, and developing technologies aiming to enter a dynamic energy storage marketplace. Submit your abstract and plan to participate in one of the most significant energy storage research and development events this year.
