Advanced Materials Processing and Manufacturing for Lithium-Ion Batteries
The cost of electric vehicle batteries has been reduced by >70% from 2008 to 2015. However, significant cost reduction is still required to further reduce the battery cost from about $200/kWh to the aggressive cost target of $80/kWh. Majority of battery cost comes from materials and manufacturing. This seminar breaks down battery cost, and discusses recent progress in advanced materials processing and manufacturing for low cost and high-energy lithium-ion batteries.
Dr. Jianlin Li is a materials scientist focusing on electrode formulation and architecture, advanced material processing and novel materials characterization methods for energy storage and conversion. He joined ORNL as a postdoctoral research associate in 2009 and became a staff scientist in 2012. He holds a PhD from the University of Florida, one M.S. and two B.S. degrees from the University of Science and Technology of China. Dr. Li has authored 10 US patents and patent applications, 80 peer-reviewed articles, and 3 book chapters. He is a recipient of numerous prestigious awards, including two R&D 100 awards and one FLC Excellence in Technology Transfer award.
