Innovation Summit on Sustainable Energy Storage

April 6, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm

Sustainable energy storage is currently a trending topic within energy conversion. Solar and wind power still lack large-scale means to store converted energy, which makes availability limited. In the transport sector major challenges are found in finding systems for storage and distribution of energy in various forms. From a materials perspective these challenges put focus on battery technology, super capacitors, hydrogen production and storage, fuel cells, superconductors, power electronics and more.

Materials Business Center welcomes you and your colleagues to an Innovation Summit on Sustainable Energy Storage at Studio in Malmö. The summit will focus on what the critical needs are within sustainable energy storage, and what is on the cutting-edge of research in the area. The purpose is for participants to learn about existing business opportunities and challenges, explore new collaborations and get a glimpse into the future of energy storage.
