About DTU Energy Conversion : In a sustainable energy system a large part of the energy will be supplied by fluctuating sources such as solar and wind power. This makes it critically important to be able to convert and store the energy as needed. The researchers in the Department of Energy Conversion and Storage work on technologies and materials for direct conversion and subsequent storage of different forms of energy. The key technology areas of the Department include fuel cells, electrolysis, batteries, solar cells and hydrogen storage
