Energy Storage in Batteries: Materials, Systems and Manufacturing
11 - 15 July 2016 in Möschberg, Switzerland
Energy storage devices are key components in current energy systems and will be even more important in the near future, in particular for electric mobility and renewable energy storage. With 16 speakers from academia and industry, the summer school offered a profound overview of battery research, from basic electrochemistry and material science to the management of battery systems and key application issues in the automotive and the electricity industry. The summer school was co-organized by SCCER Mobility and SCCER HaE and was kindly supported by the Accumulators and Supercapacitors research program of the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE).
The participants’ overall feedback on the course contents and the summer school organization was very good. Many regarded the lectures given as highly relevant, convincing and comprehensible, and appreciated the mix of fundamental and applied input. In the future, more methodological input with practical exercises and alternative learning methods such as in-depth discussions in smaller groups should be included in the program.
