Fall 2018 Term:
27 September. Our Energy Future: Lithium-Ion Batteries and Electrochemical Energy Storage
Jeff Dahn, Physics and Atmospheric Science, Dalhousie University, Halifax NS.
Jeff Dahn has been working on lithium and lithium-ion batteries for 40 years in industry, government and academia. He won the inaugural Governor General's Innovation Award in 2016 and NSERC's Gerhard Herzberg Gold Medal in Science and Engineering (Canada's top Science Award) in 2017. His laboratory is now partnered with Tesla in an NSERC Industrial Research Chair program.
The world is shifting more and more to renewable sources of energy like solar, wind and tidal. However, the sun does not always shine, the wind does not always blow and tidal flows are sometimes zero. Electrochemical energy storage (in batteries) is needed to deal with this variability when the fraction of renewables on the energy grid becomes large. In this talk, Jeff will highlight Dalhousie and Canadian contributions to the science and technology of lithium-ion batteries that are helping with the transformation to renewable energy and electric vehicles.
