EASE Student Award Winner

EASE is pleased to announce its Student Award Winner!

EASE is happy to announce the winner of the first edition of the EASE Student Award contest: Eduard Ignatev! He will now have the opportunity to attend the second edition of the Energy Storage Global Conference, which will take place in Brussels on 27-29.2016, as well as to collaborate with some of the EASE bodies.

His thesis on Performance Degradation Modelling and Techno-Economic Analysis of Lithium-Ion Battery Energy Storage Systems was selected because of his innovative and highly topical research on the application of lithium-ion batteries to provide primary frequency regulation.

Eduard holds MSc degrees in Electrical Engineering from the Lappeenranta University of Technology (Finland) and Moscow Power Engineering Institute. During his studies, he developed a strong interest in energy storage as part of the smart grids and sustainable infrastructure development. In the future he hopes to specialise in designing and engineering power systems while promoting trendsetting technology solutions such as energy storage.

“EASE is dedicated to promoting young talents in the field and will continue to support students who are keen to contribute to the development and research of energy storage”, said Patrick Clerens, EASE Secretary General. “We look forward to welcoming Eduard to our Global Conference and to involving him in the work of EASE bodies.”

Renewing the congratulations to Eduard from all EASE members, EASE would also like to thank all students who applied to the contest.
