5th International Conference on Nanotechnology, Nanomaterials & Thin Films for Energy Applications (NANOENERGY)  

18-20 July 2018 

University of Aveiro, Portugal 


The potential of nanotechnology for energy related  applications is enormous. The use of nanomaterials for energy applications can be addressed at almost any scale, from picowatts to 

megawatt size. Nanomaterials can address many unmet needs in energy applications; they can be used to improve energy densities, efficiencies, increase rates of energy transfer, and increase stabilities for example. Nanotechnology also has the potential to facilitate hitherto underdeveloped or unknown commercial applications for energy (smart clothing, flexible 

electronics, covert inks, energy scavenging/converting devices) as well as bring down the cost of new energy technologies and enable their mass production. Within the field of 

nanotechnology, new materials development will play an important role toward a sustainable energy future. The NANOENERGY conference is an offshoot from the more established NANOSMAT conference. Since 2005, “NANOENERGY” has been organized as a “Symposium” each year at the NANOSMAT conferences. As a result of the growing success of the NanoEnergy symposia held during the NANOSMAT conferences – the first ever standalone “International Conference on Nanotechnology, Nanomaterials & Thin  Films for Energy 

Applications” was held at the University College London (UCL) in London, UK during 19-21 February 2014, which was a huge success and with attendance exceeding 200 plus. The 2nd NANOENERGY conference was held in Manchester, UK during 1-3 June 2015; the 3rd NANOENERGY was held at the University of Liverpool  (UK) in July 2016 and the 4th NANOENERGY conference was successfully held in Aalto University, Finland during 26-28 July 2017. 

  The 5th NANOENERGY conference will address the theory, design, research, discovery and development of new materials and nanotechnologies in relation to the field of energy 

applications (e.g. in energy harvesting, production, storage, transfer and use, etc.). NANOENERGY aims to bring together academia,  industries and policy makers interested in the application of nanotechnology in  the energy sector. The conference will discuss the state-of-the-art and latest development of nanotechnology, nanomaterialsand thin filmsfor energy applications but also investigate possible avenues ahead. High-level experts both from academia and industry will address key issues relating to the topics of this conference. A wide range of disciplines will be included from theory to experiments, device development, technology demonstration, manufacture and scale-up of nanotechnology applied to energy will be covered.   

We look forward to seeing you in Aveiro for a very exciting, enjoyable and highly productive 

NANOENERGY conference.
