As a consequence to the remarkable development of the science and technology, an exponential demand for energy leads to the exploitation of nonrenewable energy sources including fossil fuel paves the way to stern environmental crises. Global warming is one of the principal threats, due to the accumulation of greenhouse gases, resulting from the use of fossil fuels. Because of limited availability, the fossil fuels have been rapidly exhausting, compelling researchers to accelerate the search for environment-friendly, renewable, and sustainable energy sources like the solar cell, wind, and electrochemical energy storage systems. Electrochemical energy storage systems (EESs), more specifically rechargeable batteries and supercapacitors being efficient alternatives, have attracted tremendous attention. Rechargeable batteries not only serve as energy storage devices but also capable of providing the dispatchable energy for transportation, i.e., electrical vehicles (EVs and hybrid EVs).

Although LIBs possess energy densities higher than those of the conventional batteries, their lower power densities and poor cycling lives are critical challenges for their applications in electric vehicles (EVs) and grid-scale storage. The present book chapter is an attempt to provide a detailed description of several aspects of the development of Li-ion battery, i.e., preferred electrode (cathode as well as the anode) materials, separators, electrolyte media, and their additives with associated challenges. This chapter spotlights the mechanism for Li-ion storage (lithiation/delithiation processes) with various vital parameters that determine the overall performance of a battery including the shape and size of electrode materials. The recent advancement in designing several nanostructures for high-energy electrodes are highlighted in detail.
