5<sup>th</sup> Symposium SCCER HaE & 33<sup>rd</sup> PSI Electrochemistry Symposium


Paul Scherrer Institut SwitzerlandInnovation SCCER Heat and Electricity Storage
The large volume of electricity production capacities from fluctuating sources wind and solar installed in the recent years is the first step towards a CO2 and nuclear waste free energy future. Nevertheless, to transform this vision  to reality, a second step, the large scale energy storage has to be taken and new services and products, associated with new or changed industrial players will find their place in the future.
In light of this context, we would like to invite you to two related events:

  The SCCER Heat and Electricity Storage
5th Symposium

The 33rd PSI Electrochemistry Symposium

The first day covers the range of energy storage in general, presented by experts from academia and industry with sessions on:
- Heat storage.
- Battery technology.
- Hydrogen production and storage.
- Catalytical and electrocatalytical CO2 reduction. - Assessment of Storage Systems.
Here a special focus is set on Entrepreneurship and Startups. CTI and Switzerland Innovation Park InnovAARE presents their support activities for start-ups together with two young enterprises active in the field of energy.

The details of our past events can be found at:

The second day is dedicated to the energy storage solutions electrochemistry can offer with a focus on the scale-up relevant questions to bring a good idea from the lab to the market.

We hope you find the topics attractive and would like to welcome you on May 9, and/or on May 10, 2017, at the Paul Scherrer Institut for discussions, sharing viewpoints or simply updating your state of knowledge.
