  • Electrodes for Li-ion Batteriesby Laure Monconduit; Laurence Croguennec; Rémi Dedryvère

    Wiley 2015; US$ 70.00 US$ 63.00

    The electrochemical energy storage is a means to conserve electrical energy in chemical form. This form of storage benefits from the fact that these two energies share the same vector, the electron. This advantage allows us to limit the losses related to the conversion of energy from one form to another.  The RS2E focuses its research on rechargeable... more...

  • Electrochemical Energy Storageby Jean-Marie Tarascon; Patrice Simon

    Wiley 2015; US$ 73.00 US$ 65.70

    The electrochemical storage of energy has become essential in assisting the development of electrical transport and use of renewable energies. French researchers have played a key role in this domain but Asia is currently the market leader. Not wanting to see history repeat itself, France created the research network on electrochemical energy storage... more...
