Developing alternative battery technologies is also becoming more important as the demand of electric transportation steeply increases, as well for the need of stationary energy storage.

We demonstrate how fundamental insight into these complex systems are important for the design of electrocatalysts and charge storage materials for future energy systems.</div> <div><br /></div> <div><div><span style="font-weight:700">Contact: </span><a href=""><span style="background-color:initial">T</span><span style="background-color:initial">omas Kåberger</span></a><span style="background-color:initial">​, Director, Energy Area of Advance. </span></div> <div><a href="">Sonia Yeh​</a>, Co-Director, Energy Area of Advance. ​</div></div> <br /></span></div> solid oxide fuel cells and carbon dioxide electrolysis via developing catalyst, electrode structure and cell configuration<p>OOTO Café, café, Sven Hultins Plats 2, Johanneberg Science Park 2</p><p>​Dr Mengran Li will give his research presentation for Assistant Professor within the Energy Area of Advance.

The chemical industry currently relies on catalysts, materials that speed up reactions, in 90% of its processes, making catalysis one the most prominent engines of our society. <br /><br />Catalysis will play a pivotal role in the transition from our fossil fuel-based society to a more sustainable and renewable society. Therefore, the design of new catalysts is crucial to the development of emerging chemical and electrochemical processes for sustainable energy production and storage. Developing novel catalytic systems for such a broad range of emerging applications, while facing metal scarcity issues, is challenging.<br />The key to designing new catalysts is understanding the complexity and dynamic nature of the catalyst surface – where the reaction takes place - during reaction. This challenge can be addressed by taking a multidisciplinary approach involving the design and testing of novel catalytic materials, and by using and developing cutting-edge new characterization techniques to gain fundamental understanding of the working catalyst. Applied to industry-relevant thermocatalytic and electrocatalytic reactions, this integrated process will help create a sustainable future through catalysis. <br /><br /></div> <div><div><span style="font-weight:700">Contact: </span><a href=""><span style="background-color:initial">T</span><span style="background-color:initial">omas Kåberger</span></a><span style="background-color:initial">​, Director, Energy Area of Advance. </span></div> <div><a href="">Sonia Yeh​</a>, Co-Director, Energy Area of Advance. </div></div> sustainable energy systems<p>OOTO Café, café, Sven Hultins Plats 2, Johanneberg Science Park 2</p><p>Dr. Dasun Perera will give his research presentation for Assistant Professor within the Energy Area of Advance.

However, the deep decarbonization of urban systems leads to a complex energy ecosystem that consists of strong interdependence among different sectors. <br />The trilemma of improving efficiency, resilience, and sustainability makes it more challenging to design such ecosystems. The importance of moving from the centralized modeling approach to a decentralized architecture to address this bottleneck will be discussed in the lecture. The novel concept of Urban Cell (based on a decentralized modeling approach), inspired by the wood-wide web mimicking the natural ecosystem among trees, will be introduced. Finally, the potential of the Urban Cell to improve sustainability, efficiency, and climate resilience of the energy ecosystem will be discussed.<br /><br /><div><span style="font-weight:700">Contact: </span><a href=""><span style="background-color:initial">T</span><span style="background-color:initial">omas Kåberger</span></a><span style="background-color:initial">​, Director, Energy Area of Advance. </span></div> <div><a href="">Sonia Yeh​</a>, Co-Director, Energy Area of Advance. ​</div></div> <div><br /></div></div> researchers day, spring 2022<p>Chalmers teknikpark, Sven Hultins Gata 9C, Campus Johanneberg</p><p>​Welcome to the All researchers day with Transport Area of Advance on Monday 30 May, 2022!

In particular, new crosslinking concepts based on polyethylene copolymers, the use of thermoplastic polyolefin blends as well as additives that allow to reduce the electrical conductivity of the insulation material will be explored. Finally, the presentation will reflect on sustainability aspects, which play an increasing role in the development of new HVDC insulation materials.</span><br /></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial"><br /></span></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial"><div><br /></div> <div><br /></div> <div><img src="/en/areas-of-advance/materials/Calendar/PublishingImages/PO-Hagstrand.jpg" alt="Per-Ola Hagstrand" class="chalmersPosition-FloatLeft" style="margin:5px;width:258px;height:242px" /><strong>Per-Ola Hagstrand, </strong><span style="background-color:initial"><strong>I</strong></span><span style="background-color:initial"><strong>nnovation &amp; Technology, Borealis AB.</strong></span></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial">Polyolefin materials can and will play a vital role in the transition towards a more sustainable society. For example, Germany will use high voltage direct-current (HVDC) power cables insulated with next generation cross-linked low density polyethylene (XLPE) to transfer a vast amount of renewable energy from north to south with minimal losses. <br />This will facilitate Germany’s green-energy transition (“Energiewende”). The presentation will give an overview of the development of next generation XLPE-based insulation material, which can be used up to a world record operating voltage of 640 kilovolt (kV).  </span><br /></div></span></div> <div><br /></div></span></div> for Tomorrow 2022: Materials Science for Sustainability<p>Chalmers Conferens Centre, RunAn, Chalmers Campus Johanneberg, Gothenburg.</p><p>​SAVE THE DATE: The topic of the 2022 Materials for Tomorrow will be Materials Science for Sustainability and cover all aspects of the Wallenberg Initiative Material Science for Sustainability, WISE. The event will take place at Chalmers Conference Centre, RunAn, in Gothenburg on 24-25 November with several internationally recognized speakers.</p><strong>​</strong><span style="background-color:initial"><strong>The Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation</strong> is investing SEK 3 billion in a new research program, the Wallenberg Initiative Material Science for Sustainability (WISE). The aim of the program is to create the conditions for a sustainable society by researching next generation of ecofriendly materials and manufacturing processes.
