SCOPE AND GOALS

Climate change and environmental degradation represent a global challenge that will mark future generations, heading to radical changes both at the economic and social level. Batteries are a key element in the transition to a sustainable, carbon-neutral future. Through energy storage we can use energy more effectively, minimizing carbon emissions. Currently, only 3-4% of the electricity generated globally is stored. To limit global warming below 2°C, energy storage capacity should triple by 2050. Therefore, the development of energy storage systems is crucial to explore and advance in this area, as well as the overcoming the different obstacles (social and economic) that stand in the way of its industrial implementation. New and emerging battery technologies, as successors to the Li-ion battery, will be greener, more powerful, intrinsically safe, and based on non-critical and abundant materials.

This Summer School focuses on the analysis of energy storage systems, highlighting their crucial role in addressing challenges related to intermittent renewable sources and integrating with electric vehicles. The primary objective is to equip experimental and theoretical PhD students or PostDocs with a solid background for initiating successful research in condensed matter and materials physics. International experts from academia, research and industry will present and discuss current advances in electrochemical energy storage systems and their application in different fields, showing the latest advances in research of relevant materials and devices.

The program will try to reflect the state of the art and the wide range of advanced analysis techniques used by the battery community, as well as the research-industry connection. We invite you to join us to learn about the latest advances in the field while enjoying an incomparable natural landscape.

HISTORY AND VENUE

The International Summer School “Nicolás Cabrera”, financially supported by the BBVA Foundation, deals with current topics in materials science, condensed matter and material physics since 1994. The School is a meeting point for numerous scientists all over the world, who share a few days in Madrid in a particularly pleasant and interacting environment.

The venue of the School is Residence “La Cristalera” in Miraflores de la Sierra, a small village in the mountains 50 km away from Madrid. There will be a welcome reception on Sunday evening (Sept. 1st, 2024) with lectures taking place from the morning of Monday (Sept. 2th) until lunch on Friday (Sept. 6th). A shuttle bus between airport and the residence will be arranged those days.

DATES AND ANNOUNCEMENTS

The registration fee of 550 € covers attendance at the school, accommodation at “La Cristalera” for five nights, all meals and coffee breaks, as well as the conference trip and dinner.

All participants are invited to present a contribution as a poster.

A shuttle bus will be provided between Madrid airport and the residence on the afternoon of Sunday, 1st, and from the school to the airport on Friday, 6th.

Please be aware that the total number of attendees to the Summer School is limited.
