Powering a Sustainable Future with Advancements in Battery Development


Join us to explore the latest advancements in energy storage, from composite electrodes to post-Li-ion batteries.

Learn about the latest developments in energy storage from two experts. We will provide a fundamental research perspective highlighting progress in developing post-Li-ion batteries based on alternative charge carriers such as Na, K, Mg, Ca, or Cl, and the importance of fundamental research and modelling in optimizing their performance. Furthermore, we will discuss successes in developing composite electrodes with increased energy density and stability for energy storage, including those manufactured through 3D printing, as well as ongoing efforts towards more sustainable battery materials and solid-state electrolytes.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • about Li-ion batteries concerns with respect to sustainability and safety aspects
  • what is the progress in developing post-Li ion batteries based on alternative charge carriers
  • what are the recent developments of sustainable alternatives to commonly used battery materials

Prof., Ph.D.

Axel Groß serves as Full Professor of Theoretical Chemistry at Ulm University. At the same time, he is PI at the Helmholtz Institute Ulm for Electrochemical Energy Storage. He studied physics at the University of Göttingen and the University of California at Santa Barbara. He obtained his Ph.D. in Physics at the Technical University of Munich in 1993. After five years as a staff scientist at the Fritz-Haber-Institute of the Max-Planck-Socieity in Berlin, he became Associate Professor of Theoretical Physics/Surface Physics, TU Munich in 1998 and Full Professor of Theoretical Chemistry at Ulm University in 2004. In general, the research of Prof. Groß focuses on the elucidation of atomistic structures and processes at interfaces and in materials based on first-principles electronic structure calculations and dynamical simulations. Originally concentrating on surface science issues, the research interests of Prof Groß have in recent years been extended to topics in electrochemical energy storage and conversion.
