In this talk, I will cover solar-rechargeable lithium ion battery: Use of energy storage devices such as lithium ion batteries (LIBs) can help to mitigate the problem of intermittent photovoltaic (PV) power. We demonstrate a simple, efficient and cost effective photo-charging design approach where the use of promising low cost solar cells such as perovskite solar cells or dye sensitized solar cells with the help of DC-DC power conversion can efficiently charge a Li4Ti5O12-LiCoO2 LIB.
