Abstract: Renewable energy sources and storage devices are recognized to be both economically and environmentally sound alternatives to fossil fuels. Examples are: solar cells, fuel cells and lithium ion batteries (LIBs). LIBs have revolutionized the electronic devices in terms of weight reduction, portability and high energy density, and are now the premier source of dc electricity. Research is being carried out towards improving the parameters like, energy density, long term cyclability, safety-in-operation and reducing the cost, i.e. essentially on all the battery components namely cathode, anode and electrolyte, so that they can be used in electric and hybrid electric vehicles (EVs/HEVs). In this context, a number of new anode materials are being investigated which can deliver higher and stable capacity than that obtainable with commercial LIB anode graphite which has a theoretical capacity, 372 mAhg-1. The present research work deals with the investigations on the Li-storage and cyclabi and amount of `counter¿ metal ions, size and morphology of the crystals and operating voltage range of cycling.
