DMITRY PELEGOV: Hello, I’m Dmitry
Pelegov from Ural Federal University. I want to present to you my course
about batteries, fuel cells, and their role in modern society. We all are living in
a fast-changing world, and global changes in transportation
and energy markets are [INAUDIBLE].. I do want to believe that soon
will pass us a point of no return, and electromobility and
renewable energy duration will be dominating all over the world. But first we have to do more efforts. And this course is my
modest contribution, which I personally can and want to do. This course is a basic introduction
to batteries and fuel cells, a cornerstone of electromobility,
smart grids, and renewables. We will learn the lesson of
history, understand the main driving forces of global changes,
and earn some basic knowledge about technologies and chemistries. This course will not make
you an expert in batteries. And it’s not supposed to do that. You see, the main goal
of the course is bridging the gap between science and society. For students more focused
in science, it will help you to better understand the
needs and demands from the industry and from society. For a general audience, it will help
serve as a kind of loose introduction to the subject. And, I’m not only the
scientist, but I also have some small experience
in documentary filmmaking. For better illustration of
my ideas and for compensation for my not-so-good English, I
will use computer animation.
