(Please note the deviating time) Pulsed discharges play a key role not only in various lightning phenomena, but also in energy efficient plasma processing, plasma horticulture, plasma medicine and in high voltage technology where the replacement of the extreme green house gas SF6 is an urgent issue. I will identify the common ground of these phenomena, sketch briefly the experimental access and then elaborate on the inherently multiscale processes in space and time. I will end with discussing methods and surprising results of our fully three-dimensional discharge simulations... Read more

Many decades of research in heterogeneous catalysis have yielded a wealth of knowledge on how to prepare metal nanoparticles in mesoporous carbon and oxide supports . However, it is seldomly realised that this knowledge might be extremely useful also for the development of new materials for energy storage and conversion, such as in batteries, supercapacitors, fuel cells, gas storage materials and solar fuels materials. Vice versa the search for new energy storage and conversion materials might inspire unorthodox approaches to identify new, promising catalysts based on low-cost and earth... Read more
On June 21st, 2017 the joint TU/e-DIFFER Center for Computational Energy Research (CCER) will be officially opened. The CCER aims to explore pathways to future energy systems via computational methods. The ambition is to complement experimental research in unlocking scalable energy solutions for mid-century and beyond.
