Towards sustainable electrochemical energy storage technology (2017–2022)
This project aims to address fundamental key issues on electrochemical energy storage technology--- the sodiumion capacitors by designing novel electrode materials and utilising advanced in-situ and ex-situ instrumental techniques in combination with modern computational simulation methods. This project will lead to a complete understanding of the charge storage mechanism and transport kinetics in sodium-ion capacitors, providing guidelines for developing sustainable electrochemical energy storage technology. This project expects to generate new knowledge in energy storage. The expected outcomes also include capacity building of UQ, training of young scientists, and intellectual property with potential commercialised products.
