Environmental protection and sustainability are major concerns in society, and the development of electrochemical devices, such as batteries, is vital for solving environmental problems. A practical device requires designing materials and operational systems, for which a multidisciplinary subject covering microscopic physics and chemistry as well as macroscopic device properties is lacking. In this situation, multiscale simulations play an important role. This book compiles and details cutting-edge research and development of computational modeling for various electrochemical devices, including hydrogen storage, Li-ion batteries, fuel cells, and artificial photocatalysis. It covers atomistic, nanoscale, microscale, and macroscale computational modeling that highlights fundamental issues to improve electrochemical devices. The authors have been involved in the development of actual energy materials and devices for many years.
