Northeastern to host Renewable Energy Storage Symposium PowerPoint PPT Presentation


Alter¬na¬tive energy sources, such as wind farms and solar panels, are often touted as the solu¬tion to the waning global supply of oil and mounting evi¬dence of carbon-induced cli¬mate change. But experts say that efforts to reduce our carbon foot¬print and diminish our reliance on oil from other nations are futile without a clean, safe, and viable way to store the energy gen¬er¬ated with these alter¬na¬tives. Without storage options, all the clean energy goes to waste.

Alter­na­tive energy sources, such as wind farms and solar panels, are often touted as the solu­tion to the waning global supply of oil and mounting evi­dence of carbon-​​induced cli­mate change. But experts say that efforts to reduce our carbon foot­print and diminish our reliance on oil from other nations are futile without a clean, safe, and viable way to store the energy gen­er­ated with these alter­na­tives. Without storage options, all the clean energy goes to waste.

The first annual Renewable Energy Storage Symposium will be held at Northeastern on August 13 and 14. Photo via Thinkstock.

On Tuesday and Wednesday of next week, a score of policy makers, researchers, and industry experts will come together at North­eastern to explore the chal­lenges of renew­able energy con­ver­sion and storage in the first annual Renew­able Energy Storage Sym­po­sium.

Hosted by Northeastern’sCenter for Renew­able Energy Tech­nology, the event will give stu­dents and lay people the oppor­tu­nity to interact with those on the front­lines of the energy storage field.

“Our focus here will be on the next gen­er­a­tion of storage ideas with a spe­cial emphasis on mate­rials chal­lenges,” explained NUCRET director San­jeevMuk­erjee, a pro­fessor of chem­istry and chem­ical biology.

Meeting pre­sen­ters include Bill Tumas, director of the Center for Chem­ical and Mate­rials Sci­ence at the National Renew­able Energy Lab­o­ra­tory in Golden, Colo., and Anthony Bur­rell, a senior chemist at Argonne National Lab­o­ra­tory. Scholars from across the nation and rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Sandia National Lab­o­ra­to­ries, a con­tractor for the U.S. Depart­ment of Energy’s National Nuclear Secu­rity Admin­is­tra­tion, will also share their expe­ri­ences and present their ideas for making new storage tech­nolo­gies com­mer­cially viable.

“Without reli­able storage strate­gies, the ulti­mate promise of alter­na­tive energy solu­tions may not be real­ized,” said provost Stephen W. Director. “We are excited about being able to host a meeting that is focused on this most impor­tant topic.”

The event is co-​​sponsored by Northeastern’s Col­lege of Sci­ence and its Depart­ment of Chem­istry and Chem­ical Biology, as well as Sandia National Lab­o­ra­to­ries, and is being man­aged by the Knowl­edge Foun­da­tion, a Boston-​​based orga­ni­za­tion that is a leading source of infor­ma­tion for the com­mer­cial­iza­tion of advanced tech­nolo­gies. Reg­is­tra­tion is open to the public.
