IEA ES Task 36 ‘Carnot Batteries’ – 3rd Expert Workshop

April 15th, 2021

This workshop will be held online on Thursday, April 15 from 10:00 – 19:00 (CET) and on Friday, April 16, 2021, from 13:00 – 18:15 (CET). The agenda and registration page are available here.

The workshop will be hosted by the University of Birmingham, UK and is being coordinated with the support of the IEA Energy Storage Task 36, Birmingham Centre for Energy Storage, and the Supergen Energy Storage Network+.

The overarching aim of Task 36 is to ease the transition from a fossil-fuel to a renewable source based energy system, through the promotion of novel energy storage systems, assisting their development, deployment, demonstration and their deep understanding.

Therefore, Task 36 aims to stablish a platform that brings together experts from the industry and academia, to systematically investigate, assess and strengthen the potential role of Carnot Batteries in the future energy systems, gaining international attention. More information about Task 36 is available here.

About the International Energy Agency’s ‘Energy Storage’ (ES) Technology Collaboration Programme (TCP)

The IEA’s ES TCP programme (see, hereafter referred to as ‘ES TCP’, formerly known as the Energy Conservation through Energy Storage (ECES) TCP, was established in 1978 with the aim of catalysing collaborative R&D on energy storage (both electrical energy storage – EES, and thermal energy storage – TES).  It is one of 38 TCPs organised under the IEA’s umbrella (21 of which the UK participates in) and comes under the IEA’s Working Party on Energy End-Use Technologies (EUWP).  EUWP agreed a five-year extension of ES TCP to 2021, based on the 2017 Strategic Plan (see
