It is co-auothered by ir. Shovon Goutam, dr. ir. Luis Miguel Oliveira, dr. ir. Jean-Marc Timmermans, prof. dr. ir. Noshin Omar, dr. ir. Maarten Messagie, prof. dr. ir. Peter Van den Bossche and prof. dr. ir. Joeri van Mierlo.
“This paper provides an extended overview of the existing electrode materials and electrolytes for energy storage systems that can be used in environmentally friendly hybrid and electric vehicles from the literature based on lithium-ion and nonlithium technologies. The performed analysis illustrates the current and future evolution in the field of electrode materials development (2015–2040). The investigated characteristics are specific energy, specific power, cycle life, and safety. Furthermore, the proposed study describes the cost and life cycle assessment of the proposed technologies and the availability of these materials”.
