Argonne Lab hosting Electrical Energy Storage Technologies and Applications Workshop

Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) is hosting the Electrical Energy Storage Technologies and Applications Workshop at its campus outside of Chicago on 20-21 March. The Workshop, sponsored by the Robert W. Galvin Center for Electricity Innovation at Illinois Institute of Technology is intended to provide background and an introduction to the work to be undertaken by the new $120-million Joint Center for Energy Storage Research at Argonne. (Earlier post.)

The Joint Center will bring together multidisciplinary researchers from the government, academia, and industry to overcome critical scientific and technical barriers and create new breakthrough energy storage technology. The event will address:

  • Fundamentals of energy storage and its applications

  • State-of-the-art and emerging energy storage technologies

  • Performance criteria for energy storage technologies and applications

  • Energy storage marketplace

  • Costs and benefits for energy storage at the grid and distributed scales

  • Interconnectivity of energy storage with the electric grid

  • Research, development, and deployment challenges for energy storage technologies

Learning objectives are:

  • Fundamentals of energy storage and its applications

  • State-of-the-art and emerging energy storage technologies

  • Performance criteria for energy storage technologies and applications

  • Energy storage marketplace

  • Costs and benefits for energy storage at the grid and distributed scales

  • Interconnectivity of energy storage with the electric grid

  • Research, development, and deployment challenges for energy storage technologies

  • Introduction to Argonne’s energy storage R&D and partnerships

Deadline for registration is 8 March.

Argonne has likely known they would be another tech hub and Joint Center for Energy Storage Research for years - the instant Obama got a second term.

Batteries with "5 times energy density and 1/5th cost in less than 5 years" REQUIRE 25% improved public sample batteries EVERY three months - NOT "Fundamentals of energy storage and its applications" (101?).

Or is this just intended to be another market barren Bush-style "Hydrogen Initiative" pork barrel?
