The Energy Sector of the Royal Society of Chemistry is pleased to announce that it is organising and promoting the 1st “Chemistry in Energy” conference to be hosted by Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland. With a history dating back to 1821, Heriot-Watt University has established a reputation for world class teaching and practical, leading edge research, which has made it one of the top UK Universities for business and industry. It is a vibrant, forward-looking University, well known for the quality of its degrees and where it offers an outstanding environment for postgraduate study and research. The University has excellent facilities and is ranked as one of the top Universities worldwide.

It is a particularly well-chosen location for this 1st “Chemistry in Energy” Conference as energy research is a core activity at Heriot-Watt University. The University’s Energy Academy covers a wide spectrum of energy research across the whole University, which ranges from conventional fossil fuels to solar energy and energy-focused materials through to energy economics, use, policy and logistics. The University’s engagement with the challenges of climate change, sustainability and security of supply has contributed towards the global understanding of these issues. It has also helped to focus the University’s achievements on how best to match its skills base to these emerging research and knowledge exchange issues.

Edinburgh, the historic capital of Scotland, and standing on the southern shore of the Firth of Forth, has much to offer the conference delegate. From the cobbled streets of the medieval Old Town near Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile leading to Holyrood Palace and Arthur’s Seat, to the modern shops, bars and restaurants and gardens of the Georgian New Town, there is something to appeal to everyone in this vibrant city. Nearby and open to visitors, the former Royal Yacht Britannia is moored in the Port of Leith.      
    

Scope and purpose of the conference
     
     The purpose of this Conference is to bring together scientists and technologists from academia and industry with interests in the applications of Chemistry in the Energy Industry. This RSC Energy Sector 1st “Chemistry in Energy” conference aims to embrace all aspects of energy–related research, where chemistry and the chemical sciences play a key or underpinning role in solving the UK’s combined energy challenges of carbon emissions, energy costs and security of supply. The scope of the conference will be broad and will include all energy forms and technologies.      
            
     Aims and objectives of the RSC Energy Sector     
     The Energy Sector seeks to share knowledge and express views on chemical matters relating to energy. The specific aims of the Energy Sector are to support the chemistry professionals with interests in energy, to organise scientific meetings, to encourage interaction between RSC groups and other professional bodies and between academic and research organisations in the energy community and to act as a focal point for knowledgeable discussion on the chemistry involved in energy related science, in particular, promoting public awareness of the important role that chemistry plays in the production and utilisation of energy.
