The aim of this workshop is to present the role of chemistry in energy storage. The energy challenge is one the most critical issues that Europe is facing nowadays. The security of energy supply is intimately linked to the need of generating and storing energy in an environmentally appropriate and sustainable manner. Chemistry will be a crucial actor in designing a future energy scenario built on innovative technologies and new materials that will both save energy and protect the environment.
