S6: International Symposium on Ceramics for Electric Energy Generation, Storage and Distribution


Preliminary Program – Symposium 14

The significant increases in demand of world energy consumption as well as clean and efficient energy resources have prompted the imperative searches of new materials and technologies. The technologies aiming for efficient electric energy generation with zero-emission will require advances not only in the existing gas turbine systems and renewable energy resources, but also efficient energy storages and reliable electric power transmission systems. This symposium will focus on the advanced engineering ceramics and technologies that could help the global community to achieve the stated goals. A broad perspective is desired including advanced materials for energy harvesting and renewable energy generation; high-temperature ceramics and composites for energy efficiency and zero emission; high-temperature superconductor technologies for efficient electric power transmission; materials development and technologies for reliable and efficient electric and advanced thermal energy storage.


Proposed Session Topics

  • Thermoelectric materials for energy harvesting
  • Materials for thermionic and thermovoltaic applications
  • Materials of capacitive energy storage (ultracapacitors and hybrid ultracapacitors)
  • Materials for solar-thermal applications
  • Novel design and strategies for energy storage
  • Smart materials design through theory and modeling
  • Ceramics and composites for stationary and distributed power generation systems
  • High-temperature superconductors
