Symposium GG

Advanced Nanomaterials for Green Energy and Environmental Applications

Nanomaterials have been used in multiple disciplines to tackle imminent challenges in the areas of sustainable energy and environmental applications. Due to the ability to enhance efficiency through control of bandgap, chemical composition, structural scheme, light propagation, charge collection/transport etc., nanomaterials have attracted immense attention.

Novel nanomaterials with unique and exceptional properties hold the key to fundamental advances of solar cells, fuel cells, photoelectrochemical cell, electrolyzers, clean fuel production, air/water purification and energy generation.


This symposium brings together scientists and engineers working in these fields where the focus will be on the design and fabrication of nanostructured materials for advanced green energy and environmental applications through photovoltaics, photoelectrochemistry, electrochemistry, electrolysis, photocatalysis, nanogenerator technologies. The context of this symposium should enable a broad interdisciplinary exchange on the latest developments of nanomaterials and their manipulations for sustainable energy and environmental applications.

Perovskite solar cells, thermoelectrics and batteries are excluded.

Topics include, but will not be limited to:

  • Nanomaterials for photoelectrochemical cells
  • Nanomaterials for photocatalytic water splitting, and environmental remediation
  • Nanomaterials electrocatalysts for HER, OER, ORR, and CO2 reduction
  • Nanomaterials for photothermal vaporization/desalination/catalysis/energy generation
  • Nanomaterials for tribo/pyro/piezo-electric generators
  • Nanomaterials for solar cells are generally included except for perovskite ones
  • Combination and integration of different technologies for self-powered devices
