Young Energy Storage Scientist Award 2015
With the Young Energy Storage Scientist award (YESS award), the RS2E research network decided to support young scientists at a critical step of their career : the search for a permanent position in the public or private sector and the installation to such a position often requires important financial resources (travel expenses, moving, equipment). That’s the reason why the prize money associated with the award is significant : the best project will be granted €10.000 (free of use).
“We hope this award will encourage many young scientists to devote their creativity and passion towards solving today’s energy issues and bring the world to a new horizon where there will be only widely available and clean energy” – Jean-Marie Tarascon, director of RS2E and chairman of the jury.

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.
