The Department of Energy Conversion and Storage at the Technical University of Denmark is focused on education, research, and development within functional materials and their application in sustainable energy technologies. The Department, which has 250 employees, was founded in 2012 by bringing research groups from Risø DTU and DTU Chemistry together.
In a sustainable energy system a large part of the energy will be supplied by fluctuating sources such as solar and wind power. This makes it critically important to be able to convert and store the energy as needed. The researchers in DTU Energy work on technologies and materials for direct conversion and subsequent storage of different forms of energy.
Our research areas include polymer solar cells, fuel cells, electrolysis, batteries, gas separation membranes, magnetic refrigeration and thermoelectric components.
