OIST Workshop "International Symposium on Sustainable Energy and Development"


2020年2月23日 (日) 15:00 から 2020年2月28日 (金) 18:00


OIST Main Campus, Seminar Room B250


Currently, more than 80% of the world’s energy generation is originated from fossil fuels (coal, oil, natural gas, etc.), which produces CO2 and other pollutants as byproduct. The side effects associated with pollution, climate changes, and global warming have raised public awareness of the need to tap alternative “green” energy sources. This proposed symposium aims at bringing to OIST renowned scientists and engineers to report and discuss the latest progress related to materials science and engineering strategies with emphasis on future sustainable energy and development directions in Asia and Worldwide. Information exchange and research collaboration will be promoted through stimulating results and engaging discussion, discussion panels, poster sessions, and mixer events of symposium participants and OIST graduate students, and other flexible interactions.

The conference will emphasize the topics such as, but not limited to:

  • Global trends of sustainable energy and development
  • Wind, tidal, wave, geothermal energy technologies
  • Various types of new generation solar cells, e.g., dye-sensitized solar cells, amorphous-Si solar cells, multicrystalline-Si solar cells, copper indium gallium selenide solar cells, copper zinc tin sulfide solar cells.
  • Transparent photovoltaics (PV) for building integrated PV (BIPV) and building applied PV (BAPV)
  • Hot electron photovoltaic devices
  • Ferroelectric oxide solar cells
  • Up- and down-conversion strategies in energy harvesting
  • Moving PV research forward towards commercialization
  • Innovative energy storage systems (perovskite materials based batteries, supercapacitors, etc.)
  • Fundamental investigation on degradation mechanisms of Li ion batteries 
  • PV applications of organic-inorganic perovskites and beyond
  • Lighting devices based on novel materials
