Motivation for a Magnesium Battery

This chapter shall give an overview on the motivation for doing research and development on magnesium batteries. Basically, three main drivers are identified: the perspective for making “better” batteries compared to the already known systems, the need for sustainable solutions with a long term perspective, and the perspective to work in a new and exciting field of research where a series of new doors may be opened, new knowledge is created and the foundation is laid for further technical development. While this introductory chapter will only briefly comment on these motivations, the upcoming chapters will take up this discussion and elaborate upon the mentioned aspects in more detail.
