MTL Seminar Series: "A Journey into a New Energy Future: The Critical Role of Energy Storage"
Wednesday, September 27, 2017 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Grier Room, 34-401 50 Vassar Street, Cambridge, MA 02139
Christina Lampe-Onnerud, Cadenza Innovation
Dr. Lampe-Onnerud will address the developing technologies that will end the historic paradigm that greater energy density, better safety and lower cost in batteries are mutually exclusive in energy storage. This will allow dramatically greater use of energy storage in automobile and grid storage.
Emphasizing the increasingly similar battery system designs necessary for both the automotive and grid storage industries, the lithium-ion battery industry veteran will describe an evolving sector that encompasses open-ended, large systems interfacing with the present-day utility industry, the new electric car storage potential and renewable electricity generation. Dr. Lampe-Onnerud will also explain how China's rapid market development and progressive policies are adding to global complexity by enabling new supply and manufacturing industries.
