New Center for Energy and Environmental Chemistry opens in Jena; organic radical batteries, redox flow batteries and high-temperature batteries
Friedrich Schiller University Jena (FSU) and the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems Hermsdorf / (IKTS) are launching the new Center for Energy and Environmental Chemistry (CEEC) at Jena in Germany.
CEEC Jena will focus on three types of batteries: organic radical batteries, redox flow batteries and high-temperature batteries (such as sodium-sulfur batteries), with applications for the latter two targeted at energy storage from renewable generation.
Twelve to 15 working groups of the University and the Fraunhofer Institute, will now be linked under the umbrella of the CEEC. There are also two newly established research groups which have already been set up in preparation for the center.
