Efficient energy management is a key factor to achieve a sustainable development in terms of energy consumption and its impacts on climate change. The integration into the energy grid of renewable energy technologies, some of which are inherently intermittent sources of energy, has required the integration of an intermediate stage into the electricity supply chain: storage. Batteries are the most widespread energy storage device in power system applications given their ability to provide a sustained power delivery, fast response capability and geographical independence. New materials are being investigated to develop batteries with higher performance and reduced environmental impact. Organic battery materials composed of Earth-abundant elements offer long lifespan, low cost, long autonomy, very good safety performance, and high power and energy density while being more environmentally friendly than traditional inorganic compounds.
