A forum for discussion of the latest research in materials for energy
Lisbon, Portugal, 5-7 April 2017

2 March 2017: Deadline for REGISTRATION

After the successful previous editions of 2012 (Torremolinos) and 2015 (Madrid), Formatex Research Center cordially invites you to participate in The Energy & Materials Research Conference - EMR2017, which will be held in Lisbon (Portugal) from 5 to 7 April 2017.
EMR2017 will bring together researchers and professionals from a broad set of science and engineering disciplines with the aim of sharing on the latest developments and advances in materials and processes involved in the energy generation, transmission-distribution and storage. The connection is clear between research into novel materials and new technological solutions or improvements in materials, and the development of cleaner, cheaper safer and more efficient energy technologies.

This conference will provide an excellent opportunity for everyone involved to learn and discuss about materials, processes and systems applied to the following areas:

  • Biomass - Biofuels
  • Solar Energy
  • Fuel Cells
  • Hydrogen
  • Wind Power
  • Geothermal Energy
  • Hydropower. Wave and Tidal Power
  • Nuclear Energy and Materials
  • Energy Production from Fossil Fuels
  • Energy Harvesting Materials
  • Energy Transmission, Distribution and Storage
  • Advances in Lighting Materials
  • Heat Exchange
  • Energy-Efficient Buildings
  • Materials, Processes and Systems for Energy Saving and Sustainability
