Energy Frontier Research Centers (EFRCs)
Researchers point to “self-healing” materials as a potential means of improving lithium ion battery safety. This work, featured in the Office of Science’s Stories of Discovery & Innovation, was supported in part by the Center for Electrical Energy Storage (CEES), an EFRC led by Michael Thackeray at Argonne National Laboratory.
Researchers fashion a record-breaking material to recycle waste heat into electricity. This work, featured in the Office of Science’s Stories of Discovery & Innovation, was supported in part by the Revolutionary Materials for Solid State Energy Conversion (RMSSEC), an EFRC led by Donald Morelli at Michigan State University.
