The 4th International Symposium on Materials for Energy Storage and Conversion (mESC-IS 2019) took place on 11-13 September 2019 in Akyaka, Mugla. The symposium provided a forum for discussion in recent progress made in three major activity areas, namely i)batteries and supercapacitors, ii) fuel/ electrolytic cells and iii) hydrides for energy storage and conversion. The symposium had a fair balance of plenary sessions on cross-cutting issues and the state of the art reviews, as well as in-depth parallel sessions on specific topics with invited, contributed papers and poster presentations.

The HYDRIDE4MOBILITY project consortium contributed to mESC-IS 2019 with the following presentations:

  1. Mykhaylo Lototskyy, Ivan Tolj, Adrian Parsons, Yevgeniy Klochko, Irshad Khan, Edson Naylor, Maurice Shenker, Ali Brey, Sivakumar Pasupathi and Vladimir Linkov. Fuel cell power module for electric forklift with integrated metal hydride hydrogen storage system – plenary talk; presented by M. Lototskyy and I. Tolj.
  2. Nyallang Nyamsi and M. Lototskyy. Performance simulation of combined two-tank latent and thermochemical heat storage systems for high temperature waste heat recovery – oral; presented by M.W. Davids.
  3. W. Davids, T.C. Martin, M. Lototskyy, R. Denys and V. Yartys. Hydrogen storage properties of oxygen modified AB2 type metal hydride alloy – poster; presented by M.W. Davids.

The presentations familiarised the Symposium participants with recent research outputs achieved by HYDRIDE4MOBILITY project team within WP4 (1 – UWC & FESB; 2 – UWC) and WP1 (3 – UWC, HSS & IFE).
