Workshop "Energy flexibility in buildings: a key asset in the future energy system"

The research group ECOS – Energy efficiency in Systems, Buildings and Communities of IREC will organize, on Monday, March 26th in Barcelona, an open workshop under the title "Energy flexibility in buildings: a key asset in the future energy system". The aim of the workshop is too deep understand the amount of energy flexibility that buildings and electric vehicles can provide in future energy systems with a high share of renewables. Relevant outputs from the activities in the IEA EBC Annex 67 (Energy Flexible Buildings – http://www.annex67.org ) and other international and national projects in this field will be presented.

Information and Registration: It is necessary to formalize the registration due to capacity limitations in the room (limited places). Free registration.

All information, including the program of the day and online registration is available at the following link: https://goo.gl/forms/dziqw1XDBztbHkFO2

Dr. Albert Tarancón appointed ICREA Research Professor

 

ICREA community, the Catalan Institution for Research and Advanced Studies, that hires the most talented and extraordinary scientists and academics of Catalunya, incorporates this year Dr. Albert Tarancón as a ICREA research professor in recognition of his research work, synonymous of scientific and academic excellence on a global scale.

Dr. Albert Tarancón, a Research Professor at IREC, has been appointed by ICREA to continue leading the Nanoionics and Fuel Cells group. The research work carried out by Albert is in advanced materials for energy applications. In particular, he has been developing innovative concepts for improving the performance of different solid state energy devices such as Solid Oxide Fuel and Electrolysis Cells (SOFC/SOEC), ThermoElectric Generators (TEGs) or Li-ion batteries for energy storage and portable power applications.

In the last years, Albert has been specifically developing new concepts for the unexplored field of Nanoionics. Nanoionics is called to drive a new revolution similarly to Nanoelectronics, underlining the relevance of size effects and interfaces on mass transfer, transport and storage. Albert's group is pioneer in implementing interface-dominated nanomaterials in real devices for radically new applications. In this direction, he has also recently been awarded with an ERC CoG to implement disruptive Nanoionics concepts in Si-integrated micro-SOFC Technology.

From IREC we congratulate to Dr. A. Tarancón for his new ICREA position!

L'IREC participarà en la segona edició d' Entrepreneurship and energy to innovations

IREC will participate in the second edition of the Entrepreneurship and energy to innovations talks (E2I Talks) organized by InnoEnergy in Barcelona. The E2I Talks is a high quality event consisting on three talks from different areas of business –academia and public- and a networking session. This edition will focus on the Challenge of Energy Storage. The speakers share their experience, insight and knowledge about the challenge of energy storage with a community in the sustainable energy field composed of students, entrepreneurs and other professionals fostering collaboration, inspiration, professional opportunities and solving challenges to achieve a sustainable energy future. In particular, IREC, represented by Prof. Dr. Juan Ramon Morante y Dr. Félix Urbain, will talk about their research areas and recent advances in the field of Energy Storage Technologies.

The event will take place at CCCB – Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona on Friday the 2nd of February at 19.00.
