The world is poised on the brink of two historic energy transformations: replacing oil with electricity in transportation, and replacing high carbon, finite-supply coal and natural gas with renewable wind and solar electricity production. These energy transformations require the development of a new generation of high performance, low cost electrical energy storage technologies, with five times the energy density and one fifth the cost of today's commercially available lithium ion batteries.

This session will explore the advances in applying recent advances in the experimental and theoretical techniques of nanoscience to understand the materials and phenomena of beyond lithium ion energy storage at the atomic and molecular level. The keynote address will provide an overview of one or more areas of beyond lithium ion research, such as batteries based on multivalent working ions, metal-air batteries, or redox flow batteries. The following talks will explore recent advances in beyond lithium ion battery science and technology that promise to overcome critical challenges.
