2016 Nanostructured Electromaterials for Energy Workshop
The Department of Chemical Engineering at Curtin University and the University of Queensland welcome you to the 2016 Nanostructured Electromaterials for Energy Workshop. A joint workshop aimed at promoting the exchange and advancement of research in energy conversion and storage technologies.
Electricity is the most convenient form of energy today. For the past one hundred years, electricity has been primarily produced by combustion of fossil fuels which has an intrinsically low conversion efficiency and emits carbon dioxide and other air pollutants.
Furthermore, carbon dioxide contributes to climate change.With increasing energy demand, depleting fossil fuel reserves, and growing concerns about the climate and environment, there is an urgent need to increase electricity generation efficiency and to develop renewable energy sources. Electrochemical energy storage and conversion technologies such as fuel cells, advanced Li-ion batteries, supercapacitors and electrolysis are the most promising technologies to address these issues.
Areas of focus
The purpose of the workshop is to:
- share the latest research on electrochemistry materials for energy storage and conversion.
- identify future research hot topics.
- promote publication of electrochemical energy storage and conversion research by the Asia-Pacific Journal of Chemical Engineering (APJ).
