Developing technologies to improve our energy infrastructure grows more important every year. Sustainable production, improved efficiency, and suitable storage are all necessary to guarantee access to clean and economical energy for the future. New technologies require new methods of production, and many potentially great technologies are trapped in the lab, unable to be scaled due to limits in production technology. Energy technologies can only have an impact if they can be produced at a large scale. Spray deposition, or spray coating, has been used for decades in graphic arts and industrial painting and shows significant promise as an alternate method for continuous, roll-to-roll fabrication of wide-area electronic materials due to its ability to quickly and evenly coat wide areas in a scalable manner. This work investigates the use of spray deposition as a means of depositing materials for energy applications. Spray deposition has proved robust, versatile, and scalable when applied to thin film capacitor and battery electrode fabrication, presenting an array of benefits applicable to those systems and potential benefits to other systems.
