Energy Cooperative Research Center SCIENTIFIC/TECHNOLOGICAL DOMAINS are 100% focused on Energy storage (a EES=> batteries, supercaps & b TES=>thermal storage) systems an related applications:

1.- multidisciplinary approach: new materials design and synthesis, structural and surface analysis, solid electrolytes and modelling and simulation (atomic scale)

2.- system oriented: Na based batteries, Li based batteries, supercaps, Latent and sensible heat storage, thermochemical reactions

3.- Industrial and tech.transfer: EES post mortem analysis & prototyping
