To meet the high-energy requirement that can enable the 40-miles electric drive Plug in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (P-HEVs), long range electric vehicle (EV) and smart grid, it is necessary to develop very high energy and high power cathodes and anodes that when combined in a battery system must offer 5,000 charge-depleting cycles, 15 years calendar life as well as excellent safety characteristics. These challenging requirements make it difficult for conventional cathode materials to be adopted in P-HEVs and EVs. In this talk, we report several high energy systems that offer the potential of enabling next generation PHEVs and EVs. After a brief description of lithium ion battery concept, we will disclose several strategies to increase significantly the energy density of lithium battery through the development of novel functional materials. We will also describe some new approaches to improve the cycle life and safety of lithium batteries using advanced nanocoating at the particle level and functional electrolyte additives that play a significant role in stabilizing the interfaces during battery operation and abuse. Finally, we will also present some recent results on the beyond Li-ion systems.
