To meet the increasing energy requirements in a low-carbon economy, the development of new materials that improve the efficiency of sustainable large-scale energy conversion and storage systems is essential. Additive manufacturing (AM) technology with the capability of fabricating complex physical products of a variety of materials and composites from digital models is a great candidate for obtaining “pre-programmed” site-specific properties, for example, well-defined three-dimensional (3D) porous structures and novel materials for energy applications.
The University of Twente will host the in-person one-day symposium expecting participants from multidisciplinary research (materials science, chemical engineering, physics, and mathematics), AM, and energy application communities.
Additive manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D printing, is a rapidly growing technology with many applications in various fields. Recently, there has been significant interest in using AM to fabricate Energy Materials, such as batteries, supercapacitors, and fuel cells. This approach offers several advantages over traditional manufacturing methods, including the ability to create complex geometries, reduce waste, and achieve high precision. In this symposium, we will bring together leading academics and industries in the relevant disciples of energy conversion and storage technologies and AM, and discusses the current state-of-the-art in AM of Energy Materials, including the materials and processes used, the challenges and limitations, and the potential applications. This will eventually lead to highlighting the recent advances in this field and future directions for research and development of functionalized high-performance, cost-effective materials with a low carbon footprint, for a wide range of energy systems. The presentations and discussion will cover application-oriented topics over the whole field of Energy Materials, including:
- Additive manufacturing
- AI-guided design
- Functionally graded materials
- Composite materials
- Electrode materials
- Energy conversion
- Energy storage
Are you interested in showcasing your research at this upcoming event (optional)? Please bring one printed copy of your poster. The poster size is Din A1 format, portrait orientation (59.4 cm width × 84.1 cm height). The pins for fixing the poster on the poster boards are available at the conference venue.
