The Materials for Clean Energy will focus on the latest developments in the fields of energy harvesting and energy storage, bringing together academics and industry leaders.

MCEC is organised by the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Metamaterials of the University of Exeter, with support from the National Physical Laboratory and the CDT in Advanced Materials and Characterisation.

The conference will be held along with the annual Energy Harvesting Network meeting. Having been initially funded by the EPSRC, the Energy Harvesting Network is now a self-sufficient network of UK academic and industrial researchers and end-users of energy harvesting technology.

Topics include, but are not limited to: Solar, Thermoelectrics, Piezoelectrics, Triboelectrics, Batteries, Supercapacitors and Capacitors, (Photo) Electrolytic Fuel Production, Fuel Cells.

The energy harvesting theme will be focused on 8th - 9th April while the energy storage theme will be focused on 9th – 10th April.

If you wish to join this conference as a sponsor you can find information in the Registration Section.


MCEC 2019 will be held at the National Physical Laboratory, in the outskirts of London, “world-leading centre of excellence in developing and applying the most accurate measurements standards, science and technology available”.
