Recently, a rapid expansion and dramatic transformation in green energy has been witnessed due to the advances in digitization, artificial intelligence, and machine learning based technologies. Therefore, demand for the advanced energy storage materials and the associated smart technologies has significantly increased. As a result, the major research focus is on the development of efficient technologies involving both computational as well as experimental studies for better understanding of green energy materials.


Recently, batteries have emerged as the best option for energy storage in several applications, for instance electric vehicles. The driving range, charge time, battery lifespan and cost are the key parameters of the electric vehicle customers. The effectiveness of batteries significantly influences the performance of electric vehicles. Therefore, techniques for the design and development of efficient materials, as well as techniques to accurately predict their performance and life are required to be developed.


On the other hand, harnessing solar energy using photovoltaic solar cells is a prospective green energy generation technique. The performance and durability of solar cells depend on several factors, such as manufacturing and installation, operating conditions, presence of defects, to name a few. Therefore, health monitoring of solar cells at regular intervals is important to avoid the drop in their performance. Furthermore, design and development of material technologies for enhanced efficiency of solar cells is required.


The range of applications of energy storage is wide; from nano devices, electronic gadgets, electric vehicles to industries.
