2nd International Workshop on Carnot Batteries – SAVE THE DATE

Tuesday 15th September - Wednesday 16th September

The “Second International Workshop On Carnot Batteries” jointly organized by KIT, University Stuttgart and DLR will be held in Stuttgart on September 15-16, 2020.

Make sure to participate in the discussion about this emerging technology and join us!

Carnot batteries, also known as “Pumped Thermal Electricity Storage“ (PTES) or “Pumped Heat Energy Storage” (PHES), store the heat in inexpensive storage materials such as water, molten salt or solids and transform the heat back into electricity when needed.

The following invited speakers from academia and industry have already confirmed their attendance:

Patrik Meli MAN Energy Solutions Schweiz AG, Zürich
Reinhold Elsen RWE Power AG and TU Darmstadt, Germany
Joachim Karthäuser Climeon, Stockholm, Sweden
Gerd Janson KSB AG, Frankenthal, Germany
Bernhard Fleischmann Hüttentechnische Vereinigung der Deutschen Glasindustrie e.V, (HVG-DGG), Offenbach, Deutschland
