Speech Title: New advances in fluorinated materials for lithium ion battery
Abstract: Fluorine is a chemical element with two particular virtues for energy applications: its redox potential and its hydrophobic character. It can therefore be used to modify the electrode/electrolyte interfaces, to saturate the defects that cause poor durability of anode batteries processing by conversion or alloying electrochemical mechanism. It can also be used to create new fluorinated materials usable as cathode materials. Among all the fluorination methods, the one proceeding by the action of pure and gaseous molecular fluorine is original and the specificity of the ICCF laboratory. Through a few selected examples, we will present the latest advances in fluorinated materials for energy storage.

Speech Title: Global resource potential of seasonal pumped hydropower storage for energy and water storage
Abstract: Seasonal mismatches between electricity supply and demand is increasing due to expanded use of wind, solar and hydropower resources, which in turn raises the interest on low-cost seasonal energy storage options. Seasonal pumped hydropower storage (SPHS) can provide long-term energy storage at a relatively low-cost and co-benefits in the form of freshwater storage capacity. We present the first estimate of the global assessment of SPHS potential, using a novel plant-siting methodology based on high-resolution topographical and hydrological data. Here we show that SPHS costs vary from 0.007 to 0.2 US$ m−1 of water stored, 1.8 to 50 US$ MWh−1 of energy stored and 370 to 600 US$ kW−1 of installed power generation. This potential is unevenly distributed with mountainous regions demonstrating significantly more potential. The estimated world energy storage capacity below a cost of 50 US$ MWh−1 is 17.3 PWh, approximately 79% of the world electricity consumption in 2017.
