S12: Young Scientists Forum on Future Energy Materials and Devices


Advanced materials, device research, and technological innovation are required to address the challenges of the 21st century and in particular, the issues associated with energy production, storage and transport, and renewable resources. The advancement of large-scale new energy technologies will require support from industry, and academia to overcome the limitations of today’s existing technologies and to discover new materials and nanomaterials capable of further improving the limits. Game-changing breakthroughs in emerging materials, devices, and technologies such as novel batteries, liquid-metal systems, regenerative fuel cells, energy storage, and superconducting magnetic electrical storage are among future potential developments. The priority activities outlined in this symposium will focus on understanding and developing materials coupled with designing, developing, and demonstrating components and systems; however, there is also recognition that this work needs to be done in the context of strategic materials selection and innovative system design.
