INESS-2017 to be opened at NU

August 9, 2017

Today Nazarbayev University with the assistance of the Institute of Accumulators and National Laboratory Astana hosts the 5th International Conference on Nanomaterials and Advanced Energy Storage Systems (INESS-2017).

The INESS conference started in Nazarbayev University, Kazakhstan in 2013. This year the scientists and students from Japan, Korea, France, China, Russia, Canada, UAE, UK, Turkey and Kazakhstan  will review and discuss the recent progress and problems in materials science, nanotechnologies, ecology, renewable energy, energy storage systems and modeling methods in these fields.  

INESS is included into the list of Global Events by Elsevier Inc.:

The Conference will  also include a session with workshops by the Thompson Reuters and other specialists.

According to the head of the Center for Energy and Advanced Material Science, National Laboratory Astana, Prof. Zhumbay Bakenov, for several days conference participants will discuss the latest developments in the field of energy storage materials such as advanced rechargeable batteries, fuel cells, nanomaterials for energy, and others.

-Energy conversion and storage devices such as advanced rechargeable batteries and fuel cells are play critical role in all parts of our society, in communication and infrastructure, industry and transport, - said Mr. Bakenov. - In many areas, the technological development is directly depending on the availability of such energy devices. Therefore, the market of advanced batteries and other energy conversion and storage devices is very competitive and rapidly growing.

For example,  researchers’ group and Institute of accumulators under the  leadership of Zhumabay Bakenov design novel nanostructured materials to succeed in development of rechargeable batteries with high energy and power density, safety, low ecological impact, long cycle life  and low cost.  

Leading researchers from Tokyo Metropolitan University (Japan), Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (USA), Warwick University (Great Britain), Chungnam National University (South Korea), Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Russia), Hebei University of Technology (China) and other leaders in the development of new materials, including storage of green energy, its production and transportation, will present its projects and solutions during INESS-2017 also.
