The date is not yet concrete (November 18th or 20th).
In the era of energy transition towards full sustainable energy the subject of energy storage is of utmost importance. This symposium focuses on electrochemical energy storage – batteries – as this technology is crucial for many of anticipated developments. Moreover, already a wide range of applications exists, from batteries in electronic devices such as tablets, smart phones and laptops to large size batteries in electrical bicycles, cars and so on.
An overview will be given of the present status, the state of the art and of prospects regarding the use of electrochemical energy storage. Thin film batteries for small devices and large scale application as found in automotive companies will be reviewed. What is the ultimate energy density achievable? An important question is on the availability of sufficient material for future applications and on the recyclability.
Leaders in the field have been invited for presentations:
- Fundamental theoretical questions of electrochemical energy storage, prospects and outlook
- A Start-up on energy storage
- Automotive of the future
- Storage in the grid
This symposium is organized by the KIVI Department of Technical Physics, KIVI Students Twente, University of Twente and Delft University.
