The Energy Storage Systems and storage management Group (ESSSM) focuses on the design, analysis, testing and implementation to store energy generated by renewable resources (i.e. solar, wind, wave, hydro,…etc.). The group will investigate and develop technologies including, but not limited to:
- Electrochemical energy storage systems (EESS) such as Batteries, Hydrogen Cell and Super-capacitor.
- Flywheel Technologies.
- Compressed air energy storage (CAES).
- Pumped Hydroelectric Storage (PHS).
- Thermal energy storage (TES).
- Energy storage management and control
The group members are selected based on their solid background in various aspects of energy storage systems and have the required skills and competence to carry out projects and consultations and seek internal and external funding by submitting grant applications. In addition to yielding a healthy number of publications, reports and participate in prestigious scientific conferences, they will engage with the local and international communities to provide consultations and disseminate knowledge in the field with pertinent academic and industrial partners.
Goals & Objectives
To investigate, develop, and implement various energy storage systems and integrate them with predictive and control tools to regulate demand/supply cycles and couple an energy resource with the most adequate storage technology.
RESEARCH OBJECTIVES OF THE GROUP
The group aims to investigate and develop state-of-the-art research in the field of energy storage and storage control systems, transfer technology and improve the efficiencies of developed and innovative types of energy storage systems.
