Sustainable Nanostructured Batteries: Emerging Trends in Energy Sector is designed systematically to offer its audience a taste of the fundamental aspects of batteries, leading to the existing challenges, while also highlighting the progress made to date.The book has been divided into four parts. The first part provides introductory information about the significance of the role of an energy storage device to promote sustainability and to alleviate pressure from conventional energy resources. The second section discusses the synthesis of various novel nanostructured materials, their characterization, and functionalization. Part three highlights the role of nanostructured materials in energy storage devices, their working principles, strategies evolved to mitigate voltage, capacity, structural, and oxygen evolutions in advanced materials. Emphasis is also given on the recently developed theories to design novel high-power-density materials. The book concludes with a look at the application of novel energy materials in innovative energy practices, for instance, plug-in-hybrid electric vehicles, grid interconnections, and smart electrification.This book is designed to appeal to a broad audience, from a novice in the field to an experienced researcher interested in a resource with the latest advanced in nanostructured energy storage materials.
