Among advanced electrochemical storage systems, lithium-ion batteries are the power sources of
choice due to their high specific energy density, high efficiency and long life time. Indeed, these
batteries are today produced by billions of units per year for the consumer electronics market.
However, scaling up lithium ion technology for Renewable Energy Plants (REPs) and Hybrid
Electric Vehicles (HEVs) is problematic because of limits in safety, costs, power density and
materials availability. Revolutionary changes in the battery chemistry and configurations are
needed to solve the issues that still prevent the use of lithium ion batteries in these crucial markets.
We report here the progresses achieved in our laboratory to achieve this goal. New lithium ion
batteries, using new types of electrode and electrolyte materials, will be reported and discussed.
