A forum for discussion of the latest research in Materials for Energy
Torremolinos, Málaga (Spain), 8-9 November 2018
Extended abstract submission deadline: 28 September!
(for poster or virtual presentation)

You are cordially invited to take part in the forthcoming Energy and Materials Research Conference - EMR2018 Conference, which will be held in Torremolinos-Málaga (Spain) from 8 to 9 November 2018.

EMR2018 will bring together researchers and professionals from a broad set of science and engineering disciplines with the aim of sharing on the latest developments and advances in materials and processes involved in the energy generation, transmission-distribution and storage. The connection is clear between research into novel materials and new technological solutions or improvements in materials, and the development of cleaner, cheaper safer and more efficient energy technologies.

This conference will provide an excellent opportunity for everyone involved to learn and discuss about materials, processes and systems applied to the following areas

  • Biomass - Biofuels
  • Solar Energy
  • Fuel Cells
  • Hydrogen
  • Wind Power
  • Geothermal Energy
  • Hydropower. Wave and Tidal Power
  • Nuclear Energy and Materials
  • Energy Production from Fossil Fuels
  • Energy Harvesting Materials
  • Energy Transmission, Distribution and Storage
  • Advances in Lighting Materials
  • Heat Exchange
  • Energy-Efficient Buildings
  • Materials, Processes and Systems for Energy Saving and Sustainability

The scientific program included two plenary lectures:

"Interpretation of kinetic processes governing the operation of perovskite solar cells" by Juan Bisquert (Institute of Advanced Materials, Universitat Jaume I, Castelló, Spain). Abstract

"Current status on advanced lignocellulose conversion to bioethanol and higher alcohols as biofuels" by Francisco Gírio (LNEG – Laboratório Nacional de Energia e Geologia, Estrada do Paço do Lumiar, 22, Ed. F, 1649-038 Lisboa, Portugal). Abstract

Torremolinos, Málaga


Torremolinos is a municipality on the Costa del Sol of the Mediterranean, immediately to the west of the city of Málaga, in the province of Málaga in the autonomous community of Andalusia in southern Spain.

Once a poor fishing village before the growth in tourism began in the late 1950s, Torremolinos was the first of the Costa del Sol resorts to be developed and continues to be the most popular resort in the region in terms of bed occupancy and visitor numbers.
