Who should attend: The second Centre for Doctoral Training in Energy Storage and its Applications conference will be held at the University of Southampton on 14th September 2017, and is open to all academics, researchers, professionals and individuals with an interest in energy storage.
What you'll learn: Our research covers the spectrum of energy storage systems, technologies and their applications; from membranes for Lithium-air batteries, to phase change materials for thermal storage and battery thermal runaway, to energy storage characteristics of future cities. The conference provides an opportunity to learn more about the wide range of ways storage systems can support the transition to a low carbon economy and provide an insight into future technologies. The programme includes high-profile speakers from industry, academia and government including Centrica, Advanced Propulsion Centre and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). There will also be a mixture of short student presentations and poster displays.
Contribute - posters can be submitted by researchers in energy storage - please use this form to submit your abstract by 18th August 2017. There will be a maximum of 30 posters from non-CDT Energy Storage students (due to lack of room). There will be a poster prize.
Don’t miss this opportunity: to network with key energy storage industry influencers and discuss technology trends with the future leaders in this field.
