ISACS17: Challenges in Chemical Renewable Energy

8 - 11 September 2015, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

This conference brought together leading scientists from across the world to share scientific developments in renewable energy generation and storage.

The themes for this conference were:

Solar Fuels and molecular catalysis
Battery technology/energy storage
Fuel cells
