Energy & Environmental Science (EES) was the official publication of the conference. With an Impact Factor of 9.45 and ranked #1 in its field, EES was the ideal journal partner for the conference.

Conference highlights:

Ralph Nuzzo, of the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, gave a memorable talk on new printing-based approaches to high performance, low cost photovoltaic energy conversion systems.

Vincenzo Balzani, now emeritus professor at the University of Bologna, explained the scope of the energy challenge requiring phase-out of fossil fuels with their severe damage to climate, environment, and human health. He said that a very important achievement will be  the production of powerful, clean fuel hydrogen directly from water and sunlight.

Professor Balzani’s review in EES discusses the shift he foresees to electricity-based energy. Read it now:
