PhD course: Storage Systems based on Li-Ion Batteries for Grid Support and Automotive Applications
AAU is once again inviting PhD students and other interested people to join their PhD course on storage systems based on Li-ion batteries for grid support and automotive applications.
Time: 24-27 October, 2017
Place: Aalborg University, Pontoppidanstræde 111
The importance of the li-ion batteries is booming and after dominating portable electronics applications, they are entering into new sectors like grid support applications and propelling of the electric vehicles. The penetration of renewables in the power system is considered to significantly increase in near future; thus, batteries can play a crucial role in the reliable and cost efficient grid integration of intermittent energy sources. Besides, the grid support applications, li-ion batteries have begun to play a major role in the automotive market. The use of batteries in automotive applications is a promising option in order to replace the internal combustion engine cars with ideally, zero emissions vehicles (full electric vehicles), or with controlled emission vehicles (hybrid electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles).

Jon Fold von Bülow
Jon Fold von Bülow recieved his Cand. Scient. in Nanoscience from University of Copenhagen in 2011 and is currently working with upscaling Li- and Na-ion battery materials to the 100+ kg scale for Haldor Topsøe A/S.
Jon's main interest lies in energy technologies for the future and he started working with fusion energy at Risø National Laboratory for Sustainable Energy. He has since developed a growing interest in technologies that are closer to potential industrial application. He is a highly dedicated academic as well as a very active professional and have initiated and participated in many different projects.
His studies within nanotechnological material science and affiliation with Risø National Laboratories has taken him to Germany, China and the US, where he has collaborated independently with several international research groups. He has so far succeeded in pushing two academic projects to industrial application, first with the Danish company Coloplast A/S and recently with a California-based battery start-up – an invention that is currently being US patented.
Jon has conducted most of his work on Li-batteries in the facilities of California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) as a research scholar at UCSB-MIT-Caltech Institute for Collaborative Biotechnologies (ICB). The manganese based cathode materials he fabricated during this period were all tuned for high-power applications and covers synthesis of various manganese oxides from solution, molten and solid states.
