The 2nd International Workshop on Carnot Batteries brought together experts in energy storage, in particular thermal energy storage, to discuss the state of the art of research and demonstration of Carnot batteries. The event took place on 15-16 September 2020 in Stuttgart, Germany.
In a two-day lecture programme, a broad overview of innovative research approaches was provided, and topics of different Carnot battery concepts and their demonstration and integration into the power grid and sector coupling were addressed. Numerous participants from science and industry confirmed their participation (see list of speakers). The workshop served as an international platform to present latest results in Carnot batteries research and make them internationally visible.
