How is chemistry enabling energy storage for net zero?

8 September 2021 09:30 - 9 September 2021 15:30, London, United Kingdom

A range of new electrical and thermal energy storage technologies are being developed rapidly and are reducing in cost. Batteries, for example, are predicted by Bloomberg to reduce in cost by 52% by 2030, facilitating the UK Government’s announcement of October 2020 to increase offshore wind from 30GWe to 40GWe capacity by 2030.
Technological innovation, especially in chemistry, is now needed more than ever to allow energy storage to realise its value and benefit the UK energy system across power, heat and transport.

This online event will focus on the significant role that chemistry plays in accelerating the deployment of these technologies including new advanced materials, battery technologies, catalysis, and electrochemistry.

 Talks will cover four key themes: 
  • Energy storage - setting the scene
  • The role of electrochemistry
  • Thermal & mechanical systems
  • Sustainability in energy storage
