Designed to bring together leaders in materials science and energy, Materials Challenges in Energy 2010 aims to facilitate information sharing on the latest developments involving materials for alternative and renewable energy systems. Emphasis will be on materials challenges and innovations in areas of solar, wind, hydropower, geothermal, biomass, nuclear, hydrogen, along with special sessions on advanced battery technologies.
The 4 day interactive, interdisciplinary technical forum will include tutorials and invited overview presentations of leading energy alternatives, provided by national and international leaders in these fields, along with technical sessions addressing state-of-the-art materials issues involved with these future energy sources.
This is a follow-up to the 2008 Materials Innovations in an Emerging Hydrogen Economy. (link)
The Ceramic Transactions, Volume 202 containing the proceedings from this meeting is now available.
Who Should Attend This Event?
Similar to “Materials Innovation in an Emerging Hydrogen Economy 2008”, this conference is intended for not only scientists and engineers active in energy and materials science research (in areas involving ceramics, metals and polymers), but also those new to the field, who would like to know more about current materials related opportunities involved with leading alternative and renewable energy sources.
