Course Description

This lecture course will cover a range of existing battery technologies from lithium ion batteries used in electric vehicles, to redox flow batteries utilised in large scale stationary storage. The basic electrochemical concepts behind the battery cell will be covered and built upon as the course progresses. Compatibility and performance of battery components will also be discussed from a materials science point of view. This module will allow students to envisage what a future battery market could look like whilst considering the technological aspects, energy policy/law and employability within the sector. 


Details for second half-session courses, including assessments, may be subject to change until 23 December 2022.
