Run by Formatex Research Centre, The Energy & Materials Research Conference (EMR2012) will take place in Torremolinos (Malaga, Spain) from 20 to 22 June 2012, and will bring together researchers and professionals from a broad set of science and engineering disciplines with the aim of sharing the latest developments and advances in materials, processes and systems involved in the energy generation, transmission-distribution and storage.

In the current situation, where world's energy system is likely to radically change in the next decades, research into materials, processes and systems is currently foreseen as a critical aspect in the development of cleaner and more efficient energy. In this conference series, researchers from very different academic backgrounds (from semiconductor physicists or organic chemists exploring new ways for improving conversion efficiency within solar cells, or electrochemists pursuing better performance and durability of fuel cell components, to microbiologists deepening on how engineered microorganisms can be exploited for generating useful energy, or engineers conceiving new designs for power plants), but with an unique interest in contributing to the global energy and environmental challenges, are expected to meet in a truly interdisciplinary atmosphere.

Areas or research covered will include:
  • Biomass, Bioenergy, Biofuels
  • Solar Energy
  • Fuel Cells
  • Hydrogen
  • Wind Power
  • Geothermal Energy
  • Wave, Tidal and Hydropower
  • Nuclear Energy
  • Energy Production from Fossil Fuels
  • Energy Harvesting Materials
  • Energy Transmission, Distribution and Storage
  • Lighting
  • Energy-Efficient Buildings
  • Energy Saving and Sustainability
