Providing Power for a Growing Global Population

Don Sadoway, Professor, Materials Science & Engineering, MIT

Professor Sadoway’s research seeks to establish the scientific underpinnings for technologies that make efficient use of energy and natural resources in an environmentally sound manner. This spans engineering applications and the supportive fundamental science. As the energy sector struggles globally to provide sustainable sources of electricity for a growing population, one of the most important areas of research is in advanced batteries that will succeed lithium-ion batteries. Professor Sadoway has been at the forefront of researching new approaches to storing energy from intermittent renewable sources, such as wind and solar, and integrating it into the grid.
