Natl Seminar on Electrochemical Energy on September 29 and 30

Visakhapatnam: The Naval Science and Technology Laboratory (NSTL) is organizing a two-day national seminar on “Electrochemical energy Conversion and Storage (ECoS-2022)” on Wednesday and Thursday to meet the current and futuristic demands on the design and development of various types electrochemical energy storage and power sources to meet the current demand for environmentally friendly energy sources.
To meet the needs of both military and civilian applications, this national seminar is organized for the first time to bring together researchers and Indian industries into a common platform to establish local Eco-system in view of the ever-increasing demand for e-mobility worldwide and to gain mutual understanding of the intricacies of different energy storage systems. The seminar will be organized in seven technical sessions with an industry exclusive session where the best fifty technical papers will be presented orally or via posters.
dr. G. Satheesh Reddy, scientific advisor to the Raksha Mantri would be the main guest at this national seminar. Many prominent personalities from various organizations would also deliver keynote addresses and speeches.
The seminar will bring together leading scientists, academics, technocrats and researchers from various laboratories, universities, institutions, industries and armed forces to exchange information and share their valuable experiences.
As part of this seminar, a research facility “Advanced Batteries R and D Facility” was crowned on Tuesday by Outstanding Scientist and the Director of NSTL Dr. Y Sreenivas Rao in the presence of Dr. A. Srinivas Kumar, Outstanding Scientist, Dr. TVSL Satyavani and other scientists, officers and staff. This facility will be used to research the latest technologies of interest for both defense and civilian applications.
NSTL has been developing various energy storage devices based on different chemistry for high power applications for the past five decades and has made significant contributions. While NSTL has always focused on developing high-performance underwater weapon storage devices, the work begun in the development of lithium-ion battery technology has paved the way for battery design for high-energy applications, thus opening the way for the civilian sector. .
