Globally, the use of traditional energy sources have come under increased pressure for reform due to tighter competition for traditional resources and ever increasing evidence of climate change. Towards the goal of lowering our carbon footprint and indigenizing our resource base there exists a significant gap in our ability to store large amounts of energy in a safe and viable fashion.
This 2nd annual conference constitutes a continuing conversation on the available and desired solutions and timelines for their adoption. Its scope will focus on the science, technology, policy and entrepreneurial challenges for enabling new novel energy storage solutions for the future sustainable green energy initiatives. Government leaders, entrepreneurs and front-line researchers from industry and academia will share their experiences and present solutions for enabling these technologies to become commercially viable.
This meeting is sponsored by College of Science and Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Northeastern University and organized by NUCRET – Northeastern University Center for Renewable Energy Technology.
