100% renewable targets will require power storage to manage flows on the net
Electrolysers utilise these intermittent power flows to produce H2 gas from water
H2 gas can be stored in large quantities underground and transported via existing gas pipelines
H2 vehicles recharge faster and are more durable than battery powered transport
Growing H2 demand in industrial processes will reduce costs and increase supply
When: 16 July, 2012   Where: Nevsehir University, Turkey

The Accredited International Summer School on “PEM Fuel Cell Fundamentals” is organised by the European Commission, Directorate
General Joint Research Centre (JRC), Institute for Energy and Transport
(IET), United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO),
International Centre for Hydrogen Energy Technologies (ICHET) and the
Ovidius University of Constanta.

The Accredited International Summer School on “PEM Fuel Cell Fundamentals” as part of the JRC’S Enlargement and Integration Action has strategic objectives of helping Candidate Countries and Potential Candidate Countries to familiarise with the “EU Acquis” in areas of the JRC as well as contributing to the development of the European Research Area (ERA).

The technical objectives of the Accredited International Summer School
are tp provide general knowledge of the design, modeling and optimizationof PEM fuel cell systems to enable the comprehension of the detailed operation, functionality and interaction between the various components used in PEM fuel cell systems and to to develop analytic skills in system integration with respect to system efficiency and control engineering aspects of PEM fuel cell energy systems.  It is hoped that participants will  obtain the knowledge needed to construct and operate PEM fuel cell based technologies in the laboratory and in real applications and as a result have the ability to share knowledge related to the practical realization and implementation of fuel cell systems, especially pertaining to innovative aspects, business planning and financial considerations

The Accredited International Summer School is aimed at Master students (with a BSc in Physics, Chemistry, Thermodynamics or Material Sciences) and young professionals and junior researchers including PhD students from academia and industry.
