Universities of Newcastle and Durham – enhancing energy materials

The universities of Newcastle, Durham and Northumbria have formed the North East Centre for Energy Materials, uniting the expertise at the three universities to tackle a grand challenge of energy materials and stimulate collaboration with local, national and international industry. NECEM focuses on the interfaces between the materials and their interaction with the environment in which they operate. By addressing previously unexplored directions NECEM has the ability to provide a step change in the science and engineering of materials that use, generate and store energy more efficiently, such as developing environmentally-friendly surfaces that absorb solar irradiation.
