Dr. Ilias Belharouak, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, "Battery Manufacturing Opportunities for Our Energy Security" -- Physics and Chemistry joint colloquium -- (hosts: A. Lachgar and N. Holzwarth)

Abstract: 

The U.S. Department of Energy has a rich history of funding key battery innovations to lower the cost of rechargeable batteries to less than $60/kWh and increasing their energy density to more than 350 Wh/kg, being self-reliant on domestic critical materials, enhancing the nation’s electrification system and achieving higher degrees of decarbonization in the next decade. These investments continue to be crucial for positioning the United States as the hub for the most cumulative battery R&D programs worldwide. However, major breakthroughs in establishing a domestic supply chain for lithium-based batteries are the linchpin to enable an electrified future evolving to predominantly incorporate rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. This will require a strong battery manufacturing base that will not only enable cutting-edge advancements in materials and manufacturing sciences but will also allow the U.S. to become the world leader in energy storage.
