Batteries are ubiquitous in our everyday lives and often appear as black boxes. However, the chemistry inherent to their function is diverse and complicated. This talk highlights progress and opportunities employing electrochemical energy storage to build a green energy future. Examples of mechanistic insight gained from electrochemistry-based and electrochemistry-coupled characterization of energy storage materials and systems are highlighted, emphasizing in situ and operando methods. Characterization approaches to spatially locate and resolve insertion and conversion processes, and distinguish productive and parasitic processes in functional systems are discussed.
