The course is designed to introduce the participants to technologies that can transform the existing fossil fuel-based economy to a low carbon economy.
Over the 6 days, the lectures will cover various aspects of electrochemical, photochemical and photovoltaic conversion and storage of energy. This course will provide graduate students, teachers, engineers, and researchers working in the technology domains of batteries, fuel cells, photovoltaic cells, clean fuels, and materials for energy storage, with the theoretical knowledge that will help them to advance the technology.
