Electrochemical Energy Storage Group
Electrochemical technologies are deemed to play a crucial role in the ongoing transition to renewable energy and sustainable materials ecosystems. Electrochemical energy conversion devices such as batteries and fuel cells can operate at higher efficiencies not limited by thermal cycles, and have unique size scalability.
Electrochemical Energy Storage Group (FTMC-EESG) is currently researching and developing aqueous ion insertion batteries based on framework electrode materials and simple salt electrolyte solutions. At the moment we are primarily focused on Na- and Zn-ion based materials and technologies.
We are hosted at the Center for Physical Sciences and Technology (FTMC) which is the largest research and technology organization in Baltics. We are a part of the Electrochemical Energy Conversion Lab within the Department of Chemical Engineering and Technologies.
