International Conference on Energy Materials and Interfaces

Last month the North East Centre for Energy Materials (NECEM) held the International Conference on Energy Materials and Interfaces in Newcastle, UK, which was sponsored by Chemical Science. The conference covered topics including flexible photovoltaics, thermoelectric devices, computational simulations of interfaces in energy capture devices, applications of 2D materials in energy capture and storage, tailored interfaces in turbines and new conc‌epts in electrical and electrochemical energy storage.

Chemical Science sponsored a poster prize, which was awarded to Stephen Campbell from Northumbria University. RSC journals Energy & Environmental Science and Sustainable Energy & Fuels also awarded poster prizes to David Alejandro Palacios Gomez from Durham Unviersity and Wei-Hsiang Lin from National Tsing Hua University.
