Low/Zero Carbon Energy - Part 1

Traditional fossil fuels, such as coal, oil, and natural gas, contribute most to the sustainable economic development of industrial sectors in the past few decades. The negative environmental and economic impacts, however, should be considered since fossil fuels will trigger CO2 emission problems, which are the main contributors to climate change. In order to cope with the energy and environment crisis, Low/Zero Carbon Energy is becoming more and more popular, such as zero-carbon vehicles and power generation technologies are becoming the hot spots in both industry and academia. In this webinar, we are fortunate to have several renowned experts who will discuss their research on Low/Zero carbon technologies in different fields. We welcome them and welcome the Low/Zero carbon future.

This is the first part of a two-part webinar. Also interested in the second part? Click here for more information.

Website Content

On Tuesday, 12 July 2022, MDPI and the Journal Topics organized the first part of a two-part webinar, entitled "Low/Zero Carbon Energy - Part 1". The five contributions presented in this webinar studied different aspects of Low/Zero Carbon technologies: Energy storage, Carbon sequestration, Electric vehicles, Solar energy, Triboelectric nanogenerator, and Waste heat recovering for engines. It has been shown that more new technologies will bring earth shaking innovations to carbon reduction. The carbon-free lifestyle will be very promising in the future. The presentations were followed by a Q&A and a discussion, moderated by the Chair.

The webinar was offered via Zoom and required registration to attend.

Please note that the live recording has been edited to make for a better non-live experience.
