The Energy of our FutureBook Event
25 April @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm
From energy generation to energy storage to less energy hungry IT: the CETC invites you to an overview of cutting edge energy research and technology based in Cambridge.
Please note new venue and earlier seminar time: registration and refreshments @4pm, talks @4.30 pm.
Dr Dilek Ozgit, CSO, co-founder Zinergy
"Power to the Internet of Things"
Zinergy develops ultra-thin flexible printed battery products with the aim of providing a cost competitive and flexible power store for the Internet of Things.
Dr Dilek Ozgit received a BSc degree in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, Middle East Technical University, Turkey in 2012. She received a full scholarship to study for her Ph.D on nanomaterial enhanced energy storage devices in Cambridge University Engineering Department. Her research interests are printed and flexible energy storage solutions, zinc based battery chemistry and electrochemical capacitors. She is fully involved in the development of Zinergy's battery as the co-founder and CSO.
Dr Lata Sahonta, Programme Manager for Energy Materials, University of Cambridge
"A Grand Challenge: Materials for Energy Efficiency - an overview of Cambridge research"
After her PhD at Bristol University Lata joined the Centre for Gallium Nitride at Cambridge University, where she investigates structure-function relationships in nitride-based films, devices and nanostructures, using transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and optical spectroscopy, combined with image processing and crystallographic simulations.
Lata will give an overview of cutting edge research on novel materials being researched at Cambridge University. Applications range from solar power generation, energy storage solutions and the reduction of the energy consumed directly byInformation Communications Technology (ICT) devices. Current technologies for energy usage, generation and storage all operate way below limits set by thermodynamics and there is huge potential to introduce radical changes that derive from fundamental scientific advances in materials-based technologies.
Chris Hole, TTP
"Helping energy distribution grids adapt to the new world of intermittent energy and electric vehicles"
Chris is a Senior Consultant at The Technology Partnership. He holds degrees from the Universities of Bristol and Oxford. Before joining TTP he worked on in a variety of roles for Oxford Instruments, REMEC and Hypres.
