POSTPONED - Energy Materials for the Future

20 May 2020

Organised by IOM Communications Ltd on behalf of the Energy Materials Group

New date to be announced as soon as possible.

Energy for transportation (land, sea and air) accounts for approximately a quarter of the global energy demand, the second largest after industrial demand and ahead of domestic.

Decarbonisation of Transport - Energy Materials for the Future will bring together experts to highlight the impact of transport on climate change and examine the role that energy materials can play as a game changer in the transition in decarbonising transport.   

This focused one-day programme, organised by the Energy Materials Group of The Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining will feature a keynote which will be the Energy Materials Annual Lecture to be given by Professor Clare Grey FRS, University of Cambridge on “Understanding the Materials Challenges and Fundamental Limits for Rechargeable Batteries” invited speakers covering topics on energy sources for transport and on the potential for reuse and recycling.

A poster session will enable early career researchers with the opportunity to describe their latest research on the contributions of energy materials to decarbonise transport. Selected posters will be allocated a 3 minute flash presentation. A prize will be given for the best poster presentation.

Invaluable to energy materials students, early career workers and professionals alike, attendance at the event will count for six hours of CPD.

Confirmed speaker include:

  • Academic Keynote- Professor Clare Grey FRS, University of Cambridge

  • Dr Ainara Aguadero, Senior Lecturer, Imperial College London

  • Stephen Kent, Future Energy Sources for Rail, University of Birmingham

  • Monica Marinescu, Lecturer, Imperial College London

  • Emma Kendrick, Professor, University of Birmingham

  • Richard Sheriden, University of Birmingham
