Climate change and the decreasing availability of fossil fuels require society to move towards sustainable and renewable resources. As a result, we are observing an increase in renewable energy production from sun and wind, as well as the development of electric vehicles with low CO2 emissions. As the sun does not shine during the night, wind does not blow on demand and we all expect to drive our car with a few hours of autonomy energy storage systems are starting to play a larger role in our lives.
Therefore, in response to the needs of modern society and emerging ecological concerns, it is now essential that new, low-cost and environmentally friendly energy conversion and storage systems are found. Our group is developing novel and sustainable carbon materials to be used in key energy storage technologies such as : Supercapacitors, Li/Na Ion Batteries and Li-S Batteries.
