Center for Advanced Power and Energy Systems (CAPES)

   In the energy field, three critical paradigm shifts are revolutionizing human life: a) power production is becoming cleaner, greener due to the deep penetration of renewable energies;  b) power generation, distribution, and utilization are getting more distributed and bidirectional; c) transportation systems are getting more electrified and smarter. CAPES at ShanghaiTech aims to integrate the cutting edge technologies including distributed microgrid, smart grid, plug-in electric vehicle, internet of things, big data and artificial intelligence, to comprehensively optimize the whole process of power generation, energy storage, power distribution, and utilization. CAPES will serve as a pillar of ShanghaiTech's path to a world-class research university by cultivating top talents and pioneering the research in the field of energy. We constantly devote ourselves to promote low carbon, intelligent, and highly reliable power and energy systems in China.
