FITech - Energy Storage

FITech Energy Storage offers university-level studies on energy storage and conversion. The education is free of charge, and you can study while working.

The combat against climate change has created an unprecedented need for technologies and applications related to energy storage.

Massive, global investments are made on energy storage currently. There is an increasing need for battery and other storage technologies as well as conversion technologies related to smart energy systems. Also, mobile energy storage applications are developed rapidly. For the Finnish energy industry to be competitive, knowledge in the area needs to be continuously developed.
