European School on Ceramics for Energy Conversion and Storage (EnergyCeram)

The online school aims at presenting a current overview of ceramic materials and technologies for selected energy applications. A topical focus is put on high-temperature power generation (gas turbines, concentrated solar power) and electrochemical applications based on ionic transport (solid oxide fuel cells, gas separation membranes, electrochemical storage).

After a brief introduction of each application field including targets for properties, the relevant ceramic materials will be reviewed and evaluated. In order to be integrated in real devices, they need to fulfil numerous, often contradictory conditions, such as highest ionic and/ or electronic conductivity, stability during operation, processability, etc.

The used online platform will allow for personal interactions (including video chat and screen sharing). Enough breaks are foreseen to stimulate exchanges, offering the opportunity to chat with other participants and meet new people face-to-face or in small groups!
