Circular economy for energy storage theory

Individual course

At this course, the students learn the theoretical context of circular economy and how activity, durability and recyclability of an energy storage application will be affected by material selection. The students get to evaluate the whole life cycle of different solutions and their effect on recyclability. The students prepare different scenarios for future energy storage applications that will take into account circular economy aspects and designs for recycling.

Outcome

  • Identify circular economy concepts and the role of energy in recycling
  • Recognize the material choice effect to degradation mechanisms of the system
  • Develop new design for recycling approach for energy storage application and justify with scientific argumentation
  • Share one’s professional expertise in an online team
