6th UK Solar Fuels Symposium University of York, 19-20 March 2018

The 6th UK Solar Fuels Symposium was held at the University of York on Monday 19 and Tuesday 20 March 2018.

The high quality of the presentations and lively interactions made it into a very enjoyable and inspirational few days of solar fuels science! Find a summary of the event here.

During the main event, the UK Solar Fuels Network presented Michael Wasielewski with the Royal Society of Chemistry Physical Organic Chemistry Award and the day included talks from both UK-based and international speakers. The day ended with a poster session which showcased over 30 posters from researchers.

Kathryn Gempf, Development Editor of Sustainable Energy & Fuels and Energy & Environmental Sciencewas delighted to attend and present the following awards on behalf of the journals:

Sustainable Energy & Fuels Oral Presentation Prize:
