Call for Proposals for ADVANCED MATERIALS TECHNOLOGY AND ENERGY STORAGE ADVANCED HYDROGEN AND FUEL CELL PROGRAMME (AMEST) PROGRAMME.
Following areas have been identified and project proposals may be submitted for research development and demonstration under AMEST.
Innovative, Sustainable specific energy storage technologies, which are efficient, clean, high-energy density, low-cost, standalone or integrated for stationary mobile applications and electrical and electronic devices & appliances.
Self-reliance in energy storage systems is an important agenda to achieve the fossil fuel independence and to sustain green energy. The requirements of energy storage are application specific with importance to high level of safety and low cost. Some application demands High Power Density, some high energy density, some Fast Charging and some high cycle life. The lists of applications envisaged in the present call are the following:
Electric Mobility: Safety, Fast Charging, High Energy Density, Decent Power Density, High Cycle life, Low Cost.
Stationary Storage for Renewable Energy: Safety, High Power Density, Decent Energy Density, High Cycle Life, Low Cost.
Electronic Toys: Safety, Fast Charging, Low Cost
What is expected as outcome of the project is advanced energy storage systems with round trip efficiency >90%, specific energy >300 Wh/kg, energy density >800 Wh/l, power density 1 kW/l, cycle life >5000 and cost < $ 200/kWh at individual cell or device and <$ 300/kWh at system level. The above numbers specified will vary depending on systems chosen. (Batteries, Supercapacitors) WHO CAN SUBMIT PROJECT PROPOSALS:
The Project Proposal could be submitted for financial support though ONLINE MODE ONLY by Scientists/ Engineers/ Technologists working in universities and other Academic institutions; R&D institutions/ laboratories having adequate infrastructure and facilities to carry out R&D work. The PI(s) should have relevant experience as evident from previous prototype commercialization or development or practical experience in the chosen area/topic with field knowledge.
Application received without above documents with incomplete information will not be entertained. Soft copy in pdf format is also to be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before 30th September, 2022 (05:30pm).
