About this book

This book highlights progress towards the capture, storage, and utilization of energy through the development of advanced materials and systems based on abundant elements, materials, and commodities. Energy is critical to human sustainability and a global-scale deployment of renewable energy systems will be required. Hence, the chapters integrate the fundamental aspects that enable the technical advancements in detail, along with an emphasis on the need for highly sustainable materials to enable real impact for humankind: To determine innovation of energy capture and storage through characterizations of materials in areas of electrical generation and electrical storage systems; To demonstrate better performance, economic and environmental advantages than the current state of the art; To define new chemistries and materials for innovations in energy density design through lower operational temperatures, improve safety, expanding operational voltage, battery durability lifetimes, and reduce system costs.

  • Advances critical technical and commercial objectives for novel high energy density materials;
  • Evaluates operational material models for optimizing energy capture that are integrated by configurations as a system;
  • Illustrates utilization of material life cycle assessment for high energy outputs generators for sustainable materials.

About the authors

Dr. Timothy N. Lambert is a Distinguished Member of the Technical Staff in the Department of Photovoltaics & Materials Technologies at Sandia National Laboratories, Albuquerque, New Mexico, where he engages in basic and applied research. His current research efforts include developing new electrocatalysts for the oxygen reduction and evolution reactions and developing chemistries, electrodes and components for low cost alkaline grid storage batteries. He has co-authored over 65 peer-reviewed papers and is co-inventor on 5 issued patents with several more pending.  He received a B.S. in Chemistry from University of Texas @ Austin in 1996, a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry from New Mexico State University in 2001 and was a Postdoctoral Researcher/Visiting Scientist at the University of Notre Dame/Walther Cancer Research Center prior to joining Sandia. He is currently a member of the NAATBatt International Committee on Zinc Batteries, the Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies User Executive Committee, The American Chemical Society, The Materials Research Society and The Electrochemical Society.

Dr Mark E Alston is an Assistant Professor at the University of Nottingham, Facility of Engineering since May 2018 where he is a member of Fluids and Thermal Engineering research group. Prior to this he was a lecturer while earning a PhD part-time at the University of Salford Manchester, UK. Mark’s current research area is solving multi-physics problems to modulate elevated high temperatures by microfluidic novel systems for examining and measuring thermal conductance across the interface of a composite. This has led to several articles in Nature Scientific Reports and collaborations with industry including BASF SE Advanced Materials and Systems Research in Ludwigshafen, Germany and composite manufactures partners supporting him in the US and UK. Mark works as a consultant for UKRI Innovate UK in smart materials and is a member of American Physical Society. Research outreach has led to a number of media interviews; American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), Polymer Composite can Regulate Its Own Temperature, February 1st, 2019 - American Physical Society (APS), Physics Buss; Nov 15th, 2018 - Design News, Material & Assembly Aerospace Materials, Bio-Inspired Materials Keeps Cool at High Temperature, December 5th , 2018.
