Materials Challenges in Alternative & Renewable Energy 2016 (Archive)


Meeting Description

The weather in Clearwater, Fla., brought bright sunshine and comfortably warm, breezy temperatures for this year’s Materials Challenges in Alternative and Renewable Energy (MCARE) conference.


Clearwater Beach’s finely ground, ultra-white sand set against the aquamarine waves of the Gulf of Mexico provided a serene backdrop for attendees to converge and discuss the most pressing alternative and renewable energy challenges facing materials scientists today.    


The event drew nearly 200 attendees from 30 countries—including Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, South Korea, and the U.S., among many others—April 18–21.


A poster session held Tuesday evening gave researchers at the meeting the opportunity to showcase their latest work on renewable energy solutions.
