Keynote Speaker: Khalil Amine


At the upcoming BATTERY 2030+ workshop on 20 November at Virje University in Brussels, Dr. Khalil Amine, one of the world’s most cited scientists in the field of battery technology, will give a keynote speech about the global challenges of the battery revolution. 

Dr. Khalil Amine, leader of the
Advanced Battery Technology team
at Argonne National Laboratory.

Dr. Khalil Amine is an Argonne Distinguished Fellow and the leader of the Advanced Battery Technology team at Argonne National Laboratory, where he is responsible for directing the research and development of advanced materials and battery systems for electric vehicles, grid, satellite, military and medical applications. He is also the Deputy Director of the US/China clean energy research center and serves as a committee member of the U.S. National Research Consul at US Academy of Sciences on battery related technologies. He is an adjunct professor at Stanford University.

Dr. Amine holds over 198 patents and patent applications and has 558 publications with google h-index of 116. From 1998-2018, he was the most cited scientist in the world in the field of battery technology.

At the BATTERY 2030+ workshop on 20 November, he will give a keynote speech about the global challenges for the battery revolution focusing on the advanced next generation lithium battery and beyond.

“The opportunities that several beyond lithium ion technologies represent are huge in term of energy and cost reduction, but the challenges to enable them are even bigger and require a concerted effort to overcome. BATTERY 2030+ is a good example that addresses these challenges”, says Khalil Amine.

 “We are so thrilled to have Dr. Khalil Amine as our keynote speaker and on board in supporting our efforts to make something large and comprehensive for battery research in Europe, says Kristina Edström, Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at Uppsala University and Coordinator of the BATTERY 2030+ initiative.

During the workshop, all stakeholders of the battery value chain in Europe will have the possibility to discuss and provide input on the current status of the roadmap for long-term battery research. After a general presentation positioning the BATTERTY 2030+ initiative in the European landscape, more specific exchanges will be organised to discuss the main research areas that have been identified to address the challenges and opportunities for Europe to develop next-generation batteries:

● Accelerated discovery and design of battery materials and interfaces
● Smart sensing and self-healing functionalities
● Manufacturability and recyclability

The discussions will also target the need for additional long-term research areas.
