Energy Storage and its Applications

The ground-breaking Centre for Doctoral Training in Energy Storage and its Applications at the Universities of Sheffield and Southampton opened in October 2014, funded by the EPSRC, to tackle industrial challenges and develop new technologies and skills that will enable the UK to meet its low carbon targets.

Festival of the Mind 2018

  • All around campus and Sheffield city centre (map)

From 20–30 September 2018 we’re teaming up with Sheffield’s creative and digital community for a celebration of ideas, culture and collaboration. Last year’s festival saw 50,000 visitors attend 75+ events across 16 venues.

Our students will be demonstrating their own renewable energy generation and battery storage game for children (from age 8 onwards) and adults to play, called Keep the Lights On. You can also talk to our students about their research, and career aspirations, in energy storage and how you can do your bit for renewable energy. 

Follow all the activities at and @FestivalMind.

We would like to acknowledge and thank the International Power Sources Symposium for their kind donation to the CDT in Energy Storage, which funded the development of this game for outreach activities.
