Project objectives

The objective of the proposed project is basic research on one of these concepts - the calcium metal anode - oxygen cathode (Ca - O2) cell. Fundamentally this should enable many different practical features such as longer-ranging electric vehicles, by the high energy density cells, and more sustainable electrochemical stationary storage at low cost by high abundance/availability and no scarce materials usage. Overall, the project addresses interdisciplinary research encompassing various electrochemical and material science engineering fields and techniques, which both are needed and expected for any successful development of a novel battery technology.
