The United Nations’ International Panel on Climate Change recently presented a report which summarised the results from over 6,000 research papers. The report concluded that urgent action is needed to limit the global temperature rise to 1.5°C. Failure will have dire consequences, with extreme weather and sea rises predicted. The conference will focus on understanding how developments in materials contribute to the reduction of carbon emissions in power generation, developments in power storage and distribution, and reduction in energy consumption.
