Call for Papers – Large-scale Energy Storage and the Circular Economy
The world is on the precipice of widespread, low-cost renewable power, and even lower cost, longer duration storage is required to enable continuous use of these emission-free, stochastic sources. While incumbent aprotic lithium-ion batteries have benefited from both cost reduction and fleet predictably enabled by economies of scale in production, learnings from the energy storage boom of the last decade
have launched a number of new energy storage efforts spanning multiple chemistries and formats.
This special issue asks two simple questions:
1) Where does the utility of lithium-on end for stationary storage applications?
2) Where does the utility of non-lithium-ion solutions begin for these same applications?
