Session 5-C

Science for Energy

Thursday, November 3, 2:40 - 3:30 PM

Speaker(s): Harriet Kung

The 21st century brings with it staggering challenges for more advanced energy technologies that are abundant, clean and economical. Transforming the ways we generate, supply, transmit, store and use energy are the paramount opportunities for the world in the coming decades.

To convert sunlight to fuel, efficiently store energy or enable a new generation of energy production and utilization technologies requires the development of new materials and processes of unprecedented functionality and performance. Advances in research and development serve as the foundation for transformational energy technology. This presentation will focus on grand science challenges to energize a new era of innovation.
