The Energy Storage Research Network (ESRN), the SUPERGEN Energy Storage Hub and the Science & Technology Facilities Council (STFC) are delighted to announce the first UK Energy Storage Research Conference, UKES2014. The conference aims to provide an inclusive platform for all researchers in Energy Storage, including PhD students, early career researchers and senior scientists, in academia, industry, research institutes and Government, to present their work through talks and poster sessions. This is the first in a new UK annual conference series celebrating the best research and innovation in energy storage across all sectors. We are grateful to the RCUK Energy Programme for financial support.
The conference is aimed at PhD students, early career, and senior researchers in Industry, Academia, Research Institutes and Government, in the UK and internationally.
Abstract submission for oral presentations at this conference is now closed and the successful candidates have been notified. If you wish to present a poster at this conference, please complete the form below or email Jacqueline Edge at email@example.com. Delegates are invited to register to hear about leading edge research on energy storage around the UK and to participate in collaborative learning and networking events.
Schedule for UKES2014 has been updated.
Maplesoft workshop: Discretisation of PDE Problems Using Symbolic Techniques for Energy Storage Systems Modelling
Partial differential equations (PDEs) are used to describe a wide variety of phenomena such as sound, heat, electrostatic, electrodynamics, elasticity, fluid flow, etc., and solving them is a critical step to better understanding the behaviours of a physical process. In this presentation you will learn how to define a PDE as a process in Maple’s symbolic environment and solve it using different techniques, namely finite difference method, collocation method, and Galerkin’s technique.
Maplesoft tutors will give a presentation will also demonstrate, through the use of examples and case studies, the advanced symbolic mathematics techniques for several technical problems including heat transfer and high-fidelity battery design. The presentation also shows the integration between Maple and MapleSim to create high-fidelity multi-domain models of physical systems based on the results from solving PDEs in Maple.

At the end of the UKES2014 conference on the 27th November, all delegates are cordially invited to tour the laboratories at the University of Birmingham and the WMG Centre HMV Catapult. You may choose to visit either, or both: please specify your preference when you register through the registration form below, or contact Jacqueline Edge at email@example.com if you wish to change your selection. Lunch will be provided for all delegates attending the tours.
Transport from the conference venue to the University of Birmingham will be provided. The tours will be followed by a drinks reception.
The Birmingham Centre for Cryogenic Energy Storage will comprise a suite of state-of-the-art laboratory spaces across the University of Birmingham led by Professor Yulong Ding. The Centre offers facilities which will take energy storage research through to grid-connected testing. It has been enabled by a £6m capital grant from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, and industrial and institutional contributions, with the laboratories due for completion in August 2014. The tour will include:
The 350kW/3MWh cryogenic energy storage pilot plant will be sited next to the Chemical Engineering labs, with the space currently being prepared, to receive the equipment from the Highview site in Slough by March 2015.
WMG’s unique Energy Innovation Centre comprises of hybrid powertrain testing facilities, battery characterisation testing laboratories and a battery scale-up line facility.
The Centre supports research to tackle the challenges in developing hybrid/electric vehicles and energy storage systems. Our team of academic staff and engineers test applications relating to safety, performance and reliability. To complement this, WMG’s newly established scale-up line facility will allow the creation of A5 sized lithium ion pouch cells to investigate new materials to optimise the scale-up of new battery innovations.
Delegates attending the WMG tours will be provided with a buffet lunch. After this, they will be assembled into smaller tour groups and shown the following facilities:
UKES2014 will be held at the University of Warwick, indicated by the green 'V' on the map below - click on this symbol for a map of the campus and more information.
Registration for the conference starts at 12:00 pm on the 25th November, in the Panorama Suite, 2nd floor of the Rootes Building (marked 55 on the campus map).
