 Advanced nanomaterials for renewable energy

On 25th November 2022 | 02:30 – 04:30 PM (IST)

The world is currently facing challenges on two main frontiers, viz. petroleum shortage and severe climate change. Approximately 80% of global energy consumption depends on using non-renewable fossil fuels which lead to air pollution, global warming and energy crisis, and hence non-sustainable. Harvesting energy from renewable sources, including wind and solar power, is believed to be a promising and green alternative to the conventional source of energy. The need for energy is vast, and the demand proliferates yearly.

The increasing thrust on reducing carbon footprint and increasing climate resilience have further escalated research in renewables that are certainly a good choice for the future. The research community is continuously developing various electrochemical devices to store electric energy via chemical reactions. Energy storage devices with higher energy densities are generally coupled with lower power densities, leading to multiple applications based on the energy requirements. The roadmap of next-generation renewable technologies can be formulated on the basis of learnings from past and latest innovations in the field.

The webinar will help us understand the future possibilities of advanced nanomaterials and their applications in renewable energy.
