In our group of Electrochemical Energy Technology Group at PKU, we are interested in solving the most urgent and tough energy problems in front of us, and we tackle the problems from the perspective of electrochemistry. We aim to develop efficient, reliable and yet low-cost batteries, geared towards grid energy storage and electric transportation, both of which are critical sectors for a clean and renewable future. We also aim to extend our expertise to develop electrochemical solutions for solving the pressing questions pertaining to fossil fuel shortage, CO2 accumulation, innovation on resources recycling and exploitation. One thrust of our research is to develop new chemical systems and materials/chemical solutions (electrolytes, electrodes) towards our envisioned systems and applications, and the other is to understand the chemical/materials origin and mechanism of how it works or fails, by applying a range of characterization techniques developed by us and the field.
