Symposium on Electrochemical Energy Conversion: Research Highlights in Materials, Devices, and Mechanisms

Date: Friday, 30 December 2011, 08:50 to 12:50
Venue: Rayson Huang Theatre, The University of Hong Kong, Pokfulam, Hong Kong

Organized and Sponsored by HKU Initiative on Clean Energy & Environment (HKUICEE)

'Sustainable development calls for renewable energy sources, utilization efficiency, and low carbon emission. Increasing electricity generation from the intermittent wind and solar sources has encountered bottlenecks in storage. Biomass derived fuels require unconventional conversion and consumption. While electricity is the most convenient energy form for stationary consumption, chemical energy is needed for mobile and transport applications. Efficient conversion between electrical energy and chemical energy plays a critical role in the development of a sustainable energy infrastructure. The mini-symposium of "Electrochemical Energy Conversion" provides highlights of research developments in fuel cells and batteries. There are contributions from different Asian Pacific countries addressing issues of materials, catalysts, reaction mechanism, and devices. '
