Argonne OutLoud: JCESR Goes Beyond the Lithium Ion Frontier (Nov. 14, 2013)

At the end of November 2012, the U.S. Department of Energy announced that Argonne's Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR) proposal — a consortium of 14 institutions including national labs, universities and private companies — was selected for a five-year, $120 million Energy Innovation Hub to develop next-generation batteries beyond lithium ion.

This award opens a new horizon of energy storage research with the promise of transforming the electricity grid and transportation. This talk presents the vision and strategy of JCESR and its place in Argonne's broad landscape of energy storage research.
