New Centre for Energy Materials Research officially launched
A new state-of-the-art facility, the Centre for Energy Materials Research (CEMR), was officially launched on 9 May by the University of Oxford’s Department of Materials. This will provide world-class capabilities to support the development of the next-generation materials urgently required to address the climate crisis.
Spread over five floors of the recently refurbished Rex Richards Building, the CEMR will bring together experimental and computational scientists working on different aspects of energy storage and conversion. With an extensive range of synthesis, characterisation, and analytical equipment, the facility will enable a highly interdisciplinary approach to energy materials research. Central to this is the ability to handle and process materials under an inert atmosphere, since many energy-related materials react with the oxygen and water present in air.
