Let’s make Finland a forerunner in energy storage technologies!

 

Aalto's researchers have come together to solve the energy storage challenge that comes with renewable energy. Electrical energy storage is important but other options are needed in addition as the amount of weather dependent energy production grows. The power can be convert to gas or fuels (power-to-X). It is also related to the topic how fuels could be converted back to electricity more efficiently. Get a wide perspective on the forefront of the research and join us to envision the future. This event is the second part in a series of three breakfast seminars.

Register here. Registration closes 13.4.
