On August 1, 2014, the Center for Electrical Energy Storage became the Center for Electrochemical Energy Science (CEES), when it was renewed as an Energy Frontier Research Center by the U.S. Department of Energy for another term.

Although significant advances have been made over the past two decades in non-aqueous lithium-ion battery technology, substantial advances are required to meet the specific and volumetric energy storage demands of the 21st Century. Our guiding hypothesis in this work is that a robust molecular-scale understanding of these complex processes will enable the discovery of fundamentally new concepts, structures and architectures that, ultimately, lead to disruptive advances applicable to energy systems having electrified materials and interfaces.
