About the course

In today's world, we see game-changing movements in transportation and energy markets. A better understanding of the processes involved can help you to find your own role in these incipient shifts and take advantage of monumental changes down the road.

This course is an elementary introduction to batteries and fuel cell, the cornerstone of electromobility and renewable energy, the main drivers of sustainable development. Learning the lessons of history, understanding the main driving forces, and gaining the basic knowledge of the key technologies will build your basic all-around comprehension of the subject.

This course aims tobridgescience and society. For students focused on science, it will help illustrate the demands of society and industry. For learners from industry, business, or from generalist backgrounds, it will be the lucid introduction to the subject.

The short course will not make you an expert in batteries, fuels cells, and electric vehicles, but will help you incommunicating with scientists and engineers and make your further education (or self-education) more productive. The main focus of the course is on batteries - namely, lithium-ion batteries - and electric vehicles as the key market.
