This international workshop aimed at giving an up-to-date description and review of the different materials and technologies currently being implemented for various energy applications, with a special focus on renewables. Fundamentals aspects, as well as modeling and characterization have been widely covered, foccussing on :
materials for energy conversion,
materials forenergy storage,
materials for an efficient use of energy.
The workshop also provided an overview of the most promising materials being investigated in these domains.
