RTEC Energy Storage Workshop

The workshop is targeted at leading PIs from Research Triangle Energy Consortium (RTEC) members that are conducting research highly relevant to electrochemical energy storage.  To help seed the thinking, there will be keynote speakers from DOE that will help establish the landscape for opportunities and emerging needs in energy storage.  These keynotes will be followed by presentations highlighting some of the regional capabilities relevant to energy storage.  To help turn this information into an actionable strategy, attendees will break into small groups to brainstorm on the opportunities and approaches to combine forces.  More details on the
agenda are provided below.
