New technologies for energy conversion and storage are essential to address climate change. Such technologies require a fundamental advance in the science of energy materials. The discussion will bring together world-renowned experts in the field of fuel cells, hydrogen storage, batteries, supercapacitors, solar energy and nuclear power. They will review the state of knowledge, establish the key scientific challenges, tension these against each other and set the priorities and agenda for research in materials for energy technologies in the coming decade.

The proceedings of this meeting have now been published in a dedicated issue of Philosophical Transactions A.
