How to exploit the only global super power: Challenges in solar energy conversion and storage

12 April 2016, 6.15 PM - 12 April 2016, 7.15 PM

Professor David Fermin

Wills Memorial Building

This inaugural lecture is given by Cabot Institute member Professor David Fermin, School of Chemistry.

Even the staunchest climate change deniers would accept that large scale utilisation of solar energy is crucial for powering the ever growing global population. The deployment of solar energy systems, as well as other renewable energy sources, involves significant challenges at the physical (fundamental), technological, economic, political and societal levels. In this lecture, Professor Fermin will highlight some of the scientific challenges posed by material complexity at the atomic scale, technology uptake, lack of leadership in energy policy and the Daily Mail.
