Battery Energy Stationary Storage: The Growing Colossus
The session will consider the key drivers and legislation behind the energy storage market; the influence of net-zero, renewable, and direct energy storage targets. Examine market dynamics of a rapidly evolving sector and look at the major energy storage markets to consider where growth and next-generation technologies are evolving. Here the focus will be on the US market, with discussion around how its position differs from Europe and China, as well as the impacts of the Inflation Reduction Act. The conversation will cover pressing issues in the storage market such as safety, battery chemistry choice, and project duration trends.
A Research Framework for Grid Benefits from Energy Storage
Several challenges currently face electric utilities. Focusing on energy storage may help solve some of these challenges. The energy-storage grid-benefits taxonomy and the energy-storage grid-benefits research framework are a promising start for researchers to understand and fully bring the benefits of energy storage to the future smart grid. The goal is to identify areas for future research endeavors and illustrate new research directions to advance future research in the energy-informatics domain and enable the smart grid.
The TeraWattHour Age: How Stationary Storage Is About to Transform the Grid and the Battery Industry
E Source estimates that by the end of this decade, more than 2 TWh's of stationary storage batteries will be deployed globally. A battery-based grid will be cleaner, more efficient and cheaper to operate than the traditional fossil-fuel-based grid. This presentation will explore how the grid will change as batteries become an integral part of it. It also will explore the types of batteries that will be used.

TECHNOLOGY FOR GRID INTEGRATION
Integration of C&I Battery Storage in Heavily Loaded Distribution Grids
Integration of battery storage in commercial and industrial sites offers various business cases such as increasing PV self-sufficiency, peak shaving, time-of-use energy cost management, and meanwhile even arbitrage. Furthermore, they can offer services for heavily loaded distribution grids, for instance, caused by increasing numbers of charging stations for electric passenger cars and commercial vehicles. In this context, innovative energy management systems with sophisticated operating control strategies for such multi-use concepts play a central role in securing technical performance in terms of safety, reliability, and efficiency as well as in optimizing the revenue streams of the battery storage investment.
DC-Coupled Plus Storage: A Guide to Maximizing Production and Profit with a DC-DC Converter
Traditional storage plus solar (PV) applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus, or alternatively the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. Here we will examine how a new cost-effective approach of coupling energy storage to existing PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. This new approach leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays, and at the same time opens up new use cases and revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled solar plus storage.
Experiments and Data Requirements to Validate Grid Energy Storage Systems at Different Stages of Development
Grid energy storage components such as batteries, power electronics, and sensors are individually validated under certain conditions in laboratory settings. However, unexpected challenges often arise when these components are integrated in grid-scale systems. This talk will cover the data points that can be collected at different scales of energy storage development to minimize surprises during operation of fielded systems.
large scale Battery Energy Storage System generates a lot of data for real time monitoring and for record keeping purpose. The strategy to manage such large amount of data is important to the efficiency of the battery management system. Decision making process of what data is stored locally and what is transmitted would be discussed during this talk.
Applications that can revolutionize Grid-Scale Energy Storage are available today leveraging state-of-the-art Lithium Iron Phosphate technology. This includes industrial battery and UPS replacements along with scalable Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) ranging up to Megawatts of reliable power. This must be done while enhancing life cycle cost and minimizing maintenance by utilizing battery predictive technologies. Additional considerations to be discussed include the application voltage required, load size, runtime, efficiency, and size/weight.

Research Project "Fluxlicon": Barriers and Solutions for Stationary Second-Life Battery Systems
As electromobility ramps up, the relevance of a functioning circular economy increases. In addition to recycling, the circular economy also includes strategies that extend the useful life of battery systems. These strategies also include re-use, describing the further use of battery systems in second-life applications. The most relevant second-life applications are stationary battery storage systems, used for various grid services. Numerous barriers exist during implementation of these. The most important solution approaches to overcome these barriers are addressed in the presentation.

Safety Testing of Two Flow Battery Chemistries
The Electrochemical Safety Research Institute (ESRI) has carried out research in the area of flow batteries. Two different flow battery chemistries, namely, the vanadium system and the Zn/Bromine system have been studied to characterize the performance and the safety. The major focus is on the safety of these systems under off-nominal conditions such as overcharge, over-discharge, and external short circuit. The results of the studies for both systems will be presented.
A Sub-Millimeter Tubular Flow Battery Cell with Ultra-High Volumetric Power
This presentation introduces a sub-millimeter, bundled microtubular (SBMT) flow battery cell configuration that significantly improves volumetric power density of flow battery cell stack by reducing the membrane-to-membrane distance by almost 100 times and eliminating the bulky flow distributors completely. The SBMT cell is compatible with virtually all redox chemistries and represents a device-level innovation to enhance the volumetric power of flow batteries and potentially reduce their size and cost.
Novel Metal Complex Catholytes for Aqueous Redox Flow Batteries
The limited availability of a high-performance catholyte has hindered development of aqueous organic redox flow batteries (AORFB) for large-scale energy storage. Here we report iron complexes with 2,2’-bipyridine-4,4’-dicarboxylic (Dcbpy) acid and cyanide ligands. A symmetry-breaking design strategy leads to dramatically enhanced solubility (up to 1.22 M) even with bulky organic ligands. The redox potential of the complex could be easily adjusted by combining two ligands, leading to a tunable redox potential for the catholyte. This work demonstrated a high-performance AORFB catholyte and a general strategy for designing metal complex materials for future high-energy-density AORFBs.

PLENARY KEYNOTE PROGRAM
If a Lithium-ion Cell Can Operate for More Than 6 Months at 85°C How Long Can It Last at Ambient Temperature?
In a few of our recent papers, we have presented Li-ion cell designs with liquid electrolytes that give astounding lifetime at temperatures as high as 85°C. In fact, we have been testing these cells now at 100°C and they are operating well for more than one month so far. I will discuss what is required to make such awesome cells and then consider what their lifetime at ambient temperature might be. I will show that the energy density of these cells is very reasonable and that Co-free moderate-nickel designs also work equally well.
Next-Generation Batteries - An Update on Li Metal Battery and All Solid-State Battery
With the recent success in deploying lithium-ion batteries for light-duty passenger cars, it is time for researchers and scientists to work on a road map of next-generation batteries beyond lithium-ion. In this talk, I will give an update on the current status of research efforts in enabling lithium metal batteries and all solid-state batteries. A few cutting-edge scientific tools will be introduced, including X-ray CT, Cryo-EM, Titration GC, and more, all aimed at quantitative understanding of the failure mechanisms of next-gen batteries.
