Energy Conversion and Storage


Date: Thursday 16 November 2023
Location: TU/e Campus, Filmzaal Zwarte Doos
Organisated by: Eindhoven Institute Renewable Energy Systems (EIRES)

Processes such as the photovoltaic generation of electric power, the storage in batteries or the conversion into chemical energy carriers such as hydrogen and synthetic fuels are currently either not efficient enough, require rare or toxic materials and catalysts, or are simply too expensive. New developments and technologies will be discussed from industry and academic perspective. Fundamental understanding is one of the key elements to enable large-scale energy storage and conversion in the context of renewable energy technologies. Multiscale modeling and supercomputers can bridge many orders of magnitude and study these processes from the detailed elementary molecular reactions up to entire reactors, fuel cells and (flow) batteries.
