Development of high performance cathode materials for Li-ion batteries (2013–2017)
Effective energy storage system plays an important role in the installation of renewable energies and hybrid vehicles. The objective of this project is to develop high performance electrode materials for Li-ion batteries. Low-cost LiFePO4 and LiMnO2 cathodes will be modified with nanostructured carbons to increase their
electrical conductivity and to enhance the power and energy performance. The relationship between synthetic conditions, structure, and electrochemical performance will be established.The outcomes will lead
to innovative technologies in low carbon emission transportation and efficient energy storage systems for renewables.
