on Fuel Cell, Electrolyser, and Battery Technologies
12 – 16 September 2016 and 19 – 23 September 2016
The Joint European Summer School JESS 2016 will be held near the beautiful city of Athens on the coast of the Aegean sea. Once again, it will provide highly condensed high level courses on selected topics.
The Summer School focuses on:
Introduction to Fuel Cell, Electrolyser, and Battery Technologies
The increase in energy production from renewable sources creates a demand for energy storage technologies. Storage and conversion can be accomplished electrochemically, in batteries or chemically through electrolysis and fuel cells. There-fore, these technologies are predestined to play a major role in the energy production infrastructure of the near future.
During the Summer School, the main focus will be on the technological aspects. Starting from the fundamental principles of electrochemistry and thermodynamics the entire spectrum of materials, design and balance of plant will be covered both from an engineering point of view as well as from a modelling perspective. The technological courses will be augmented by more general lectures on energy policies and socio-economics.
In addition to the lectures, the participants will be asked to join in student projects where the content of the lectures can be applied to a case study to be presented at the end of the week.
All the lectures will be presented by highly acclaimed experts within the research fields from various universities, research centres and industry.
The Summer School targets students and young professionals within the fields of fuel cells, electrolysis and batteries.
