The scope of the conference will cover but is not limited to the following areas:

  • Conversion of solar light into electricity
  • Conversion of solar light into thermal energy
  • Conversion of solar light into chemical energy and fuel generation
  • Energy storage including batteries and capacitors
  • Fuel cells, ferroic materials (piezo, ferro, flexo)
  • Thermoelectrics – materials, methods and devices
  • Novel applications (e.g. self-powered devices for wearables and sensors)
