CHENNAI: A three-day international conference on energy materials, focusing on methodologies that bring down carbon emissions without affecting the energy output, is being held  at Sathyabama University.

The conference is being held in association with the National Institute of Materials Science, Japan.

P Sivakumar, director at Combat Vehicles Research & Development Establishment (CVRDE) was the chief guest. Dr Hideyuki Murakami, from the Japan institute, said that their nation focuses more on manufacturing materials to save the generated energy, rather than developing new sources of generation.

“India will have to depend on nuclear power. For that, stronger materials, which are light in weight and with better efficiency for safety purposes, should be developed,” said S Iniyan, former director of the Institute for Energy Studies at Anna University.

The key themes of the conference include, materials for renewable energy storage and advanced characterisation techniques for energy materials.
