The development of low-cost, fast-charge batteries is essential to the advancement of automotive electrification. The recent United States Advanced Battery Consortium RFPI (Request for Proposal Information) seeking low-cost, fast-charge cells emphasizes the importance of this technology. In this keynote, Mark Verbrugge will review what is needed to achieve this development. He will explain the key considerations of negative electrode behavior and review the materials required. Mark will also emphasize the need for sustainable battery solutions based on Earth-abundant materials with low cost per unit mass, the use of which ensures lower cost cells with increasing specific energy per unit mass.
