Program description

Materials Science and Engineering

Center for Energy Science and Technology(CEST) is a new Skoltech Center grounded in 2018. CEST has been formed combining the former Center for Electrochemical Energy Storage (CEE) and Center for Energy Systems (CES), both grounded in 2013.

Research withinCESTconsists of five main thrusts (see below) and a cross-cutting thrust on computational materials that parallel key areas of global trends, market forecasts, anticipated industry size, expected growth, and targeted opportunities by 2025-2040.

Mission

The factors driving the growth of the energy conversion and storage markets are progress in renewable energy power generation, rapidly increasing grid scale energy storage market, drop in prices of metal-ion and redox flow batteries; and the growing applications of energy conversion and storage technologies in various end-user industries.

Research Thrusts

With a keen focus on emerging areas the CEST concentrates on the following (see details in section Research):

Thrust 1.ELECTROCHEMICAL ENERGY STORAGE
Thrust 2. ELECTROCHEMICAL ENERGY CONVERSION
Thrust 3. SOLAR ENERGY CONVERSION AND STORAGE
Thrust 4. SMART GRIDS: SYSTEMS AND DEVICES
Thrust 5. ENERGY MARKETS AND REGULATION
Cross-cutting Thrust. COMPUTATIONAL ENERGY MATERIALS
