The summer course Battery Camp will be oriented on the use of chemical batteries for accumulation of energy for the future of family homes, small communities and transportation means. The academic programme offers interdisciplinary knowledge in the fields of energy, accumulation techniques, electromobility for independence and sustainability. The course is designed for students and the broader public in the field of energetics, electrical and mechanical engineering, civil engineering, architecture and urban planning, safety engineering, municipal development and engineering. The summer school offers an intensive course for those interested in sustainable development, permaculture, sustainable energetics, electrochemistry, control technologies and energy accumulation techniques. The programme is based on lectures and site visits together with a workshop on a selected topic and presentations of the course. Lectures will consist of theoretical fundamentals followed by practical exercises that will demonstrate methods and tools for development, planning, measuring and evaluation battery accumulation units. The laboratory experiments will be based on equipment of Prototype laboratory and Common Research and Development working place for Electromobility KAIPAN.
