||Affordable, reliable and clean sources of energy are essential for sustainable development of modern societies. Advancements are needed in clean energy technology and energy infrastructure, including renewable energy, energy efficiency, cleaner fossil-fuel technology, and a cleaner and stronger power grid to serve the needs of the decades to come. These energy services rely on the development of advanced materials for energy harvesting, conversion, transmission, storage and utilization as well as their integration into complex systems.
The focus of this symposium is to convene leading global experts to engage in ceramic technology-centered dialogues to address critical issues in the design, understanding and development of energy materials and their applications for sustainable development. Researchers/scientists in energy materials and related fields are invited to participate in this symposium. This symposium is co-sponsored by the ACerS Energy Materials & Systems Division.
Abstracts are solicited in (but not limited to) the following topics:
• Materials for energy harvesting (piezoelectric, electrostrictive, electrets, triboelectric, thermomagnetic, thermoelectric, …)
• Materials for energy conversion (perovskite-based photovoltaics, photoelectrochemical cells, solar thermochemical fuel production, wind turbines, fuel cells, electrolyzer cells, membrane reactors, downconverters, upconverters, triplet triplet annihilation…)
• Materials for solar to fuels conversion (photocatalysts, photoelectrochemical devices, combined photovoltaic and electrocatalyts,…)
• Materials for energy transmission (superconductors in the power grid, …)
• Materials for energy storage (solid state ionics, batteries, supercapacitors, …)
• Materials for smart energy systems (smart grid, smart metering, smart sensors, smart homes, smart cities)
• Energy-efficient power electronics
• Transparent and translucent ceramics for energy applications
• Advanced manufacturing of functional materials or composites for energy applications (3D printing, …)
