Course Description: Addressing the challenges of a sustainable energy future requires a foundational knowledge of current and emerging energy conversion and storage technologies. Energy conversion devices such as solar cells, wind turbines, and fuel cells to energy storage systems such as lithium-ion batteries and redox-flow batteries will be covered. Devices related to thermal energy harvesting and management will be introduced as well. Applying basic principles of chemistry, thermodynamics, and transport phenomena, this course will provide a deep understanding of the operational mechanisms, resources, and material properties of each device and the synergies between them.
