In the vision of Dr. Richard Smalley's presentations on the “Future Global Energy Prosperity: The Terawatt Challenge,” we are dedicating its resources towards the development of a new conference and community focused on the discovery, promotion and implementation of improved energy sources.

This symposium is the first step in the development of this community. It will address technical advancements in the topics listed below, but will encourage submissions addressing any research, development or commercialization activity in the areas of technologies impacting energy storage and applications.

We additionally encourage your participation in this community, through your comments, suggestions and offers for assistance in review and organization.

*If interested in organizing a specific business panel or symposium, please contact Regina Ramazzini .
