2nd German-Japanese Workshop: Nanomaterials for Energy Applications
The development of sustainable energy systems is among the most pivotal challenges of the 21st century. Advancements in nanotechnology have the potential to provide novel affordable and sustainable solutions to the world’s growing energy needs via paradigm-changing approaches. These nanotechnology solutions require the development of a new understanding of how energy converts at interfaces and surfaces and how to tailor and produce functional materials. Although the range of new nanomaterials has greatly expanded and their benefit for energy conversion, transport and storage has been demonstrated, the relation between structure and function remains unclear and strategies for synthesizing and processing nanomaterials in the required quantities are missing. Potential applications of nanomaterials in the energy sector are, for example, fuel cells, lithium ion batteries, thermoelectrics and photovoltaics.
