JESS 2016: Joint European Summer School


  • Vouliagmeni, Athens, Greece Vouliagmeni Greece

Joint European Summer School on Fuel Cell, Electrolyser, and Battery Technologies

The Joint European Summer School (JESS 2016) provides an introduction to Fuel Cell, Electrolyser, and Battery Technologies

JESS 2016 on Fuel Cell, Electrolyser and Battery Technologies will be held on 13- 23 September 2016 in Athens, Greece. JESS2016 will be held in Vouliagmeni, close to the beautifulcity of Athens.

JESS 2016 willprovide highly condensed high level courses on selectedtopics of fuel cells, electrolyser, and battery technologies, this year adding a Modelling Master Class, and modules on Business Development and Fuel Cell Vehicles.

The lectures, divided into introductory and specialised courses, will be focused on the technology aspects of the FCH technologies. Starting from the fundamental principles of electrochemistry and thermodynamics the entire spectrum of materials, design and balance of plant will be covered both from an engineering point of view as well as from a modelling perspective and business development matters.

The increase in energy production from renewable sources creates a demand for energy storage technologies. Storage and conversion can be accomplished electrochemically, in batteries or chemically through electrolysis and fuel cells. These technologies are predestined to play a major role in the energy production infrastructure of the near future.

During the Summer School, the main focus will be on the technological aspects. Starting from the fundamental principles of electrochemistry and thermodynamics the entire spectrum of materials, design and balance of plant will be covered both from an engineering point of view as well as from a modelling perspective. The technological courses will be augmented by more general lectures on energy policies and socio-economics.

In addition to the lectures, the participants will be asked to join in student projects where the content of the lectures can be applied to a case study to be presented at the end of the week.

The two weeks are conducted independently of each other and targeted audience, mostly young professionals and experienced researchers, can choose the most appropriate courses. All the lectures will be presented by highly acclaimed experts within the research fields from various universities, research centres and industry.

The Summer School targets students and young professionals within the fields of fuel cells, electrolysis and batteries.
