SEMINAR | Organic Aqueous Flow Batteries for Massive Electrical Energy Storage: Michael J. Aziz at FBK
Michael J. Aziz has been a member of the faculty at what is now the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences since he joined in 1986 and is now Gene and Tracy Sykes Professor of Materials and Energy Technologies. His recent research interests include novel materials and processes for energy technology and greenhouse gas mitigation. He is co-inventor of the organic aqueous flow battery and directs a multi-investigator research program on stationary electrical energy storage. He is the Faculty Coordinator for Harvard's University-Wide Graduate Consortium on Energy and Environment.
Michael J. Aziz will be in FBK thanks to the collaboration with Green Energy Storage, a company focused ont he development of organic flow batteries that collaborates with FBK in the research and innovation activities on this field. In particular, the research units ARES (Applied Research on Energy Systems) e FMPS (Functional Materials and Photonic Structures) of the Centre for Materials and Mycrosystems, and ES (Embedded Systems) of the Centre for Information and Communication Technology are involved.
Luigi Crema, responsible of the research activies on flow batteries, within Georg Pucker (FMPS) and Alessandro Cimatti (ES), coordinate the team of researchers dedicated to the identification of innovative materials for the specific application, the development of components and battery prototypes with real-scale advanced performances and for the configuration of a full system control unit based on predictive management tools.
