Supercapacitors and Energy Storage

Energy storage is a key topic for research, industry and business, gaining more and more interest.

Supercapacitors (also known as ultracapacitors, electrochemical capacitors or double-layer capacitors) feature exceptional capacitance values reaching hundreds or even thousands of farads. This is several orders of magnitude higher than traditional devices.

Developments in supercapacitor technology and supporting electronics, combined with reductions in cost, have created extraordinary new opportunities for electrical and electronic systems in both research and industrial applications. The number of manufacturers grows every day as performance potential increases, costs fall and estimated business turnover rises.

This workshop provides an overview of the exciting supercapacitor technology, but it will also provide a forum to discuss and compare other energy storage solutions: batteries, high-voltage capacitors, superconducting magnetic energy storage (SMES), flywheels, power electronics, novel control and modeling techniques, special applications.

The workshop program is conceived to be more than a simple overview: this will offer a way for people in related fields to meet and share ideas. A specific area will be available for exhibitors.

Workshop in a Nutshell

General Information

Dates

27 and 28 May 2020

Venue

Tuscia University
Aula Magna "G.T. Scarascia Mugnozza"
Via Santa Maria in Gradi, 4
Viterbo

Topics

The Workshop provides an overview of the supercapacitor technology, but it will also provide a forum to discuss and compare other energy storage solutions.

Expected Audience

One of the main peculiarity of this event is to provide a meeting point for people belonging to different environments (researchers, manufacturers, industries, integrators and utilities) both as speakers and as audience.

Sponsors

We accept voluntary contributions from sponsors for logistics (coffee breaks, social trip, student support).

Sponsors have their logo and description on website, posters and brochures and can display promotional material on a table and insert leaflets in the attendant folder.

Exhibition Area

A small exhibition area will be available for supercapacitor samples, energy storage systems, measurement instruments and son on.

Oral Speakers

Oral speakers are invited by the Scientific Committee (see Workshop Program).

Poster Session

While the speakers for oral presentations are invited directly by the Scientific Committee, space for posters is available for all the registered students.

The Poster Session for students will be organized in parallel with the other Workshop Sessions and breaks.

Each student (undergraduate, Master or PhD) registered for the Workshop can bring a poster presenting his/her activities related to the Workshop topics.

The willingness to present a poster during the workshop must be specified in the Worksop Registration Form in order to allow the organizers to allocate the required space.

Proceedings

In order.

Students

Oral speakers are invited by the Scientific Committee (see Workshop Program).

Best Poster Award(s)

The Scientific Commitee will assign some Best Student Poster Awards to the best posters having a student as first author and presented by a student.

All the posters presented by students are eligible for the workshop awards.

The number of awards will depend on the available funds. For reference, in 2019 two awards were assigned, each award included a grant of 200 € for the student.

Registration fee

Free with mandatory registration.
