2nd International Workshop on Carnot Batteries – virtual workshop

Tuesday 15th September 2020 - Wednesday 16th September 2020

The 2nd International Workshop on Carnot Batteries went online.

With great regret we decided to hold the event exclusively as a virtual workshop.

The “Second International Workshop On Carnot Batteries” jointly organized by KIT, University Stuttgart and DLR will be held 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
