The global consumption of energy is continuously rising with imperative shift toward renewable and green resources. This shift, while essential to avoid catastrophic impact of climate change, depends on crucial materials developments that act as the bottlenecks for many promising technologies. Inevitably, Multiscale and Multiphysics theoretical and numerical methods shall play a major role to understand, predict and design such energy-related materials contributing toward solving one of the humanity’s greatest challenges. Therefore, this mini-symposium aims to share recent advances and state-of-the-art techniques in multi-scale modeling and design of energy-related materials. In particular it focuses on techniques solving problems encountered in:
• Batteries and energy storage
• Energy harvesting
• Green hydrogen and fuel cells
• Nuclear materials
• Photovoltaic cells
• Geothermal energy
• Thermal energy storage (including phase change materials)
• Thermoelectric materials
• Wind Turbines
