The electrochemical storage of energy has become essential in assisting the development of electrical transport and use of renewable energies. French researchers have played a key role in this domain but Asia is currently the market leader. Not wanting to see history repeat itself, France created the research network on electrochemical energy storage (RS2E, Réseau sur le stockage électrochimique de lénergie) in 2011. This book, the first in the Energy Storage Batteries and Supercapacitors Set, co-ordinated by Patrice Simon and Jean-Marie Tarascon, will discuss the launch of RS2E through technological advances (from Li-ion to redox-flow batteries) as well as the challenges that must still be resolved in the field of electrochemical energy storage, taking into account sustainable development. RS2Es stakeholders, objectives and integrated structure, which assure an improved continuum between basic research, technological research and industrials, are also discussed.

2. Advanced Li-ion.
3. Capacitive Storage.
4. New Chemistries.
5. Eco-Compatible Storage.
