    The goalThe aim of the course is to introduce students with the theoretical and practical knowledge necessary for the development, testing and construction of primary and secondary electrochemical power source, and energy conversion and storage of renewable power sources.
    The outcomeAfter successfully overcoming the course, students are to: (a) acquire the necessary knowledge to further the study of the theoretical and practical aspects of the application of electrochemical and renewable energy (b) mastered the art of classical and testing of new types of electrochemical and renewable energy sources, (c) acquired communication and social skills needed to work in the engineering group development laboratories and industry of electrochemical power sources.
    Contents of lectures1 Elementary concepts and definitions; Division of electrochemical power sources (EPS). Direct conversion of various forms of energy into electrical energy. Place of EPS between different energy converters. 2. The theoretical basis of EPS functioning : Thermodynamics, Kinetics, Electrical characteristics, mass and heat transfer in EPS, 3 Electrochemical systems of selected EPS: Classical systems (Zn|MnO2; Cd|NiOOH, Pb|PbO2, Zn|Ag2O) Primary and secondary metal-air system; metal hydride batteries, primary lithium based EPS, lithium-ion and lithium-polymer batteries, electrically conductive metal-polymer batteries, fuel cells, electrochemical supercapacitors. 4 Electrochemical energy to preserve the environment: energy conversion and storage of renewable sources. 5 Fundamentals of design and construction EPS.
