Materials and Devices for Energy Storage

Research & Innovation layer 2

Energy devices serve several purposes: functionality control of the driven object (such as grid, drive, electrolyzing), energy conversion and energy storage. We focus the discussion on energy devices that do not release CO2 emission in operation; hence heat engines using biofuels are left out of the scope of the centre.

The prospective energy storages will be mapped based on their power and energy capabilities. Regarding the power capability, the duration of various power levels as a function of time will be established, so that these can be mapped towards the needs from the Systems layer. To combine these storages to accomplish ‘hybrid units’ that better match the performance requirements from the Systems layer is a great possibility that will be investigated.
