Netherlands conference on Electrochemical Conversion & Materials (ECCM)

The Hague | NH Hotel • 21 Jun 2019

Mark your calendar: Friday 21 June the second Netherlands conference on Electrochemical Conversion & Materials (ECCM) will be organized by the ECCM advisory committee, appointed by the Dutch government. The ECCM committee is proud to announce the keynote speakers and invites experts from academia, industry, applied research organisations, government and NGO’s to submit abstracts to contribute to the three thematic parallel sessions of the conference.

Setup of the conference

Scope of the conference

It is clear that in our future energy system renewable electricity will play a main role in the transition to a low carbon energy supply. This transition is facilitated by CO2 targets of national governments and requires extensive electrification. In the future, however, there will still be a need for fuels (for aviation, shipping and heavy road transport) and for chemical products and materials. These activities and associated production processes are now responsible for more than 35% of global CO2 emissions. There is a big challenge to produce these fuels and chemical products through the use of renewable electricity, at the basis of biomass and/or CO2.

In addition, solutions are needed for the problem of the imbalance between production and consumption of electricity. These solutions lie in connecting networks and production capacity (interconnection), organizing an optimal balance of supply and demand, and in direct storage of electrical energy. Storage of electricity in batteries or similar systems is an option; electrochemical production of chemicals as an energy carrier is another option. Electrochemical conversion is a promising option for long-term storage as this technology is easy scalable to the amount of energy.

During the conference the state-of-the-art in science and technology will be shared by international key notes from academia and industry. Dutch scientist and industry representatives will contribute to an appealing parallel programme related to the theme of the conference. During the conference national R&D initiatives related to the ECCM theme will be announced.
