New materials are needed to enable next-generation advanced battery chemistries with high energy density or specific energy up to 13,000 Wh/kg. Anode, electrolyte, and cathode materials are constantly being improved to meet the demands of new chemistries. Nanomaterials and composite manufacturing techniques are particularly useful in anode, cathode and electrolyte development.
