EP8125 - Energy Storage and Bio Energy


Lessons are not given in the academic year 2024/2025

Course content

The course focuses on the interactions between the energy storage technologies thermal energy, hydrogen technology, battery technology, and bio energy technologies. The course covers energy storage and bio energy both in the transport sector and in the stationary sector. The course covers of distributed and localised energy storage associated with solar cell installations in buildings and energy storage solutions related to wind farms.

Learning outcome

The students will learn: - efficiently read scientific papers and extract information for use in scientific research or review papers. - how to swiftly set up the structure for a scientific research paper. - how different types of energy storage technologies cover different needs and how the nexus between the different subfields can be used to best possibly balance each other in hybrid systems or joint markeds.

Learning methods and activities

A combination of lectures, colloquials, and self studies in combination with supervision within scientific report writing will constitute the learning activities. A Scientific report must be submitted, based on Scientific articles. This will be the main course for evaluation. --- The grading will be based on the submitted report where the grading must be 70% or more. The course is given every third semester. Autumn 2025 - Spring 2027 - Autumn 2028 - Spring 2030

Course materials

"Engineering Energy Storage" 2017, by Burheim and a selection of scientific articles within the field of energy storage and bio energy will constitute the main curriculum. A tailored selection of scientific articles will be additional curiculum.
