First EPSRC Networking Grant CAM-IES meeting in Cambridge

On 26 January the first meeting on the EPSRC Networking Grant for The Centre of Advanced Materials for Integrated Energy Systems (CAM-IES) was held in Cambridge. The £2 Million EPSRC Networking Grant is a partnership between four UK universities, Cambridge, Newcastle, Queen Mary and University College London and industry partners. 

The academic partners presented the scientific work packages and led an initial discussion on the main challenges to be tackled and discussed plans for further engagement with industry and the wider community.

The focus of CAM-IES is on the development of advanced materials for energy conversion and energy storage. The overarching goal is to help build a UK-wide community of cross-disciplinary materials researchers focused on energy applications. 

 

The work packages cover the following areas:

1. Solid-solid inorganic electrolyte-electrode interfaces for solid state batteries, battery coatings and SOFCs

2. Gas-solid interfaces: Membranes for gas separation and solid oxide fuel cells

3. Liquid-solids interfaces for redox flow batteries

4. Organic-inorganic hybrid interfaces- Spin triplet excitons for photovoltaics

5. Organic heterointerfaces – New materials for efficient, large-area thermoelectrics

6. From new materials to integrated energy systems

 

In addition to the Centre at Cambridge, EPSRC has also funded the Centre for advanced materials for renewable energy generation at the University of Edinburgh and the Centre for Multiscale tuning of interfaces and surfaces for energy applications at the University of St Andrews. The networking element will also be shared between all three centres.
