A novel perovskite lead-free solid solution of (Ba0.06Bi0.47Na0.47)1-xLaxTi1-yZryO3 were designed by dual-substitution of La3+ and Zr4+ for (Ba0.06Bi0.47Na0.47)2+ and Ti4+. The frequency-, temperature- and fatigue-dependent energy storage properties of the materials were investigated. After the dopings of La3+ and Zr4+, the crystal structure of the ceramics remains unchanged; and tetragonal and rhombohedral phases coexist in all ceramics which exhibit a relaxor phase transition. The co-substitution of La3+ and Zr4+ leads to the high dielectric breakdown strength (DBS), large spontaneous polarization (Ps) and small remnant polarization (Pr) of the materials. The optimum energy storage properties are achieved at x/y = 0.02/0.04, giving high recoverable energy storage density of Wrec ~1.55 J/cm3, excellent energy storage efficiency of ƞ ~72.6% and large dielectric breakdown strength of DBS ~136 kV/cm. Furthermore, the ceramic with x/y = 0.02/0.04 possesses superior durability of frequency (~2–60 Hz), fatigue (~ 103) and temperature (~ 25–245 °C).
