Our energy dilemma the combination of population growth rampant consumerism

  • OUR ENERGY DILEMMA

  • The combination of

  •  Population growth

  •  Rampant consumerism

  •  Environmental degradation

  • threatens the livelihood of the “have nots” today and increasingly threatens the livelihood of the “haves.”

  • The disparity between the life of the poor and that of the rich

  • Fuels a rage that is finding its voice or a

    despair that is finding its feet.

  • Breeds volunteers for the struggle against

  • the vulnerabilities of the “haves.”


Our energy dilemma the combination of population growth rampant consumerism

  • US VULNERABILITIES

  • Porous borders

  • Dependence on foreign oil

     CO2 emissions – global warming

  • Internal combustion engine = distributed

    CO2 emissions

  • Alternative energy sources, viz. solar, wind, and nuclear energy, require associated energy storage.

  • Can electrochemical energy storage meet

    this requirement? Batteries vs Fuel Cells.

  • Electric vehicles would eliminate distributed CO2 emissions.

  • Can electrochemical energy stored during

  • off-peak power enable the plug-in hybrid or

  • the all-electric vehicle?

  • BACKGROUND

  • Factual Document

  •  Applications: Transportation

  • Stationary storage

  • Portable power

  •  Rechargeable Batteries: Comparisons

  •  Electrochemical Capacitors

  • Morning Speakers

  • Address these issues

  • Purpose of Workshop

  • To identify Priority Research Directions (PRDs) to enable targets identified by Applications.
