The first USA-Europe ACS Symposium on Energy

</div>5-Aug-2022 - The first USA-Europe ACS Symposium on Energy organized by the ACS Division of Energy and Fuels will be held in Chicago on August 22 and 23, 2022 on the occasion of the ACS Fall 2022 National Meeting. The theme of the 2022 Fall ACS National Meeting is "Sustainability in a Changing World".

Supported by the American Chemical Society via an “Innovative Project Grants" grant, the first ACS-supported USA-Europe symposium on energy gathers scientists and engineers from USA and Europe to present research findings and exchange ideas on energy in the context of the ongoing transition to renewable energy sources.

Topics include, energy production, energy storage, smart grid technologies, advancements in materials science for renewable energy production and enhanced energy efficiency.

Speakers at the Symposium include Giulia Galli, Bruce Dunn, George Huber, Xinliang Feng, Randall Snurr, Scott Barnett, Csaba Janaki and Jason Croy.

Yun Hang Hu, Charles and Carroll McArthur Endowed Chair Professor at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering of Michigan Technological University, and Mario Pagliaro, research director at Italy's Research Council, are the co-chairs of the Symposium.
