Symposium EN09-Nanostructured Electrocatalysts for Energy Applications

The deployment of clean and affordable energy is a global sustainable development goal, and green energy has been identified as a key pillar for mitigating climate change. Renewable clean energy, new energy carriers, carbon-free fuels like hydrogen and electric energy storage and conversion technologies like advanced batteries and fuel cells are at the heart of the new green economy roadmap. This symposium aims to cover recent advances in nanostructured materials related to electrochemical energy devices , hydrogen and carbon free carriers (hydrogen storage, hydrates, ammonia, metal fuels, complex compounds, green hydrogen) as well as electro catalysts for sustainable resourcification (water splitting, fuel generation, power generation). This symposium will consider the major issues of energy related to materials design, characterization and modeling to achieve better performance and decipher the mechanisms that take place in different types of devices such as fuel cells, and electrolyzers.

The objective of this symposium is therefore to bring together various actors around themes related to nanomaterials for the field of energy storage and conversion. Four sessions are planned around: 1) the synthesis and characterization of new functional materials- the characterization part will include recent aspects around operando analysis using large instruments such as synchrotron radiation, 2) electrochemical devices and associated performances at lab or pilot scale 3) simulation and computational modeling in materials;.

Topics will include:

  • Fuel cell, Hydrogen and Oxygen Evolution Reactions
  • Green fuels synthesis and associated catalysts
  • Artificial Photosynthesis
  • Hydrogen electrolysis
  • Molecular and heterogeneous electro catalysis
  • Sustainable resourcification
  • DFT simulations of novel nanomaterials properties and synthesis
  • Electrochemical Energy Storage (EES)
  • Organic, biodegradable batteries or photo-batteries
  • Supercapacitors
  • Hydrogen storage
  • A tutorial complementing this symposium is tentatively planned.

Invited Speakers (tentative):

  • Shannon Boettcher (University of Oregon, USA)
  • Dominic Bresser (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany)
  • Sophie Cassaignon (Sorbonne Université, France)
  • Jacques Huot (Université du Québec, Canada)
  • Sandrine Lyonnard (Commissariat à l’énergie atomique et aux énergies alternatives, France)
  • Cedric Tard (École Polytechnique, France)
  • Sara Thoi (Johns Hopkins University, USA)
  • Heng-Liang Wu (National Taiwan University, Taiwan)
