Brief description This project aims to develop high performance room-temperature sodium-oxygen batteries as a green and low-cost power source for large scale electrical energy storage. Through electrode architecture design, this research intends to significantly improve the performance of sodium-oxygen batteries, including specific capacity, cycle life and round-trip energy efficiency. Expected outcomes include reducing consumption of fossil fuels to generate electricity, with benefits for the environment, climate change and energy security.
