Frontiers in Materials Manufacturing: Future of Energy Storage

As the world pursues electrification and the rapid deployment of low-cost renewable power sources, the importance of high-capacity, long-lived, safe energy storage solutions will continue to grow. Manufacturing is central to an innovation-driven economy, and the U.S. must be competitive in order to capitalize on the growth of the energy storage sector in order to realize national security, prosperity and resilience. What is the path to increased U.S. competitiveness in this global manufacturing arena, and how can the Department of Energy’s national laboratories support it?
