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 the change of venue and the earlier seminar time for this event.
Dr Dilek Ozgit, CSO, co-founder Zinenergy
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 Efficient ICT - 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.
The Materials for Energy Efficient Information Communications Technology (ICT) Grand Challenge aims to reduce the energy consumed directly by ICT devices and in other sectors, enabled by the application of energy efficient ICT. 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. This new Grand Challenge, which involves over 50 academics from across the Schools of Physical Sciences and Technology, focuses on the new materials and devices discoveries required to engineer a step-change in ICT.
