Professor Thomas Jaramillo wins 2013 EES Readers’ Choice Award and Lectureship

Professor Thomas JaramilloWe are delighted to announce that Professor Thomas Jaramillo been selected by the EES Editorial Board as the winner of the 2014 “Energy & Environmental Science Readers’ Choice Award and Lectureship” for his article “New insights into the electrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide on metallic copper surfaces“.

Based at Stanford University in the USA, Prof. Jaramillo’s research focuses on chemical transformations in energy. Specifically, his group studies the chemistry and physics of materials as they relate to catalyzing chemical reactions of interest, namely those that convert water and CO2 into fuels and chemicals utilizing renewable energy (e.g. solar or wind), and those that convert those fuels back into usable energy in the form of electricity.

Prof. Jaramillio will give his award lecture at the upcoming  2nd International Conference on Clean Energy Science (ICCES2) taking place in Qingdao, China from 13-16 April 2014. Please do consider joining us for this exciting event.

2nd International Conference on Clean Energy Sciences

The 2nd International Conference on Clean Energy Sciences (ICCES2) will take place on the 13-16 April 2014 in Qingdao, China.

The search for sources of clean energy is becoming increasingly urgent as the supply of available energy from fossil fuels decreases and concerns increase about their environmental impact. Alternative sources of clean energy, such as solar energy and biofuels offer great potential; however there are big challenges to be overcome before current clean energy generation and energy storage technologies make these a viable alternative.

This 2nd International Conference on Clean Energy offers a unique opportunity for international researchers to discuss the latest developments in clean energy and energy storage research, and the fundamental issues surrounding the scientific challenges faced ahead.

Important dates:

Deadline for oral abstract submission: 10 November, 2013
Deadline for poster abstract submission: 9 January, 2014
Deadline for early registration: 30 January, 2014
Deadline for normal registration: 13 March, 2014
