In the current study, using first-principles simulations, we present a case for a novel composition: Na10GeP2S12 (NGPS), for application in room-temperature Na-S batteries.Solid electrolytes can enable safer and high-energy density batteries than liquid electrolytes .Sodium solid electrolytes can help in reducing the shuttling effect , which causes capacity loss in the newly emerging room-temperature Na-S batteries.
