On 17 and 18 September, the Royal Society hosted the final Energy Materials symposium as a scientific discussion meeting, entitled 'Energy materials for a low carbon future'. The meeting brought together world-renowned experts in the field including batteries, solar power and fuel cells, and aimed at setting the agenda for future energy materials research.
On 7th September, the 4th Energy Materials Symposium took place at the University of Bath. The day was a great success and had the highest turnout of the symposium series, with over 110 delegates! The flash poster presentations were particularly enjoyed as a new addition to the symposium programme.
As part of his duties as the 2016 Royal Institution Christmas Lecturer, Saiful Islam recently visited Singapore to deliver the lectures again as part of the Singapore Science Festival 2017. During this visit, he also gave a guest research lecture at the National University of Singapore on energy materials for lithium batteries and solar cells. The lectures are available on online here.
