NSERC CREATE ME2 Program in Materials for Electrochemical Energy Solutions
Annual Conference 2019
On behalf of the NSERC CREATE ME2 Team, we are pleased to invite you to the 2nd CREATE ME2 Annual Conference. The conference will be held from August 29-30, 2019” at the University of Calgary, Calgary, AB. The theme of the conference is Emerging Technologies for Sustainable Energy Solutions. The conference is an ideal academic platform for researchers to showcase the latest research and innovation in clean energy technology from the CREATE team and our partners, through oral and poster presentations on August 29th, and an Innovation Fair on August 30th. The conference seeks to contribute to presenting novel research results and bring together leading academic scientists, researchers, and industry partners to exchange and share their experiences about all aspects of clean and renewable energy.
The conference program will include presentations on the latest breakthroughs in large scale energy storage, fuel cells and solid state batteries for transport, and electrochemical fuel synthesis including carbon dioxide conversion to fuel. Four outstanding keynote speakers have been confirmed from both industry and academia (see below). The Innovation Fair is an exciting opportunity for industry, investors and researchers to learn about the latest emerging innovations in sustainable energy technologies. Researchers will display their technology and promote its commercial potential.
