The call for an efficient and affordable renewable source of energy has never been more pronounce than it was a decade ago. Today, new advances in technology have driven us in search of better and sustainable sources of energy to fuel these new developments. In decades of research, it has come to an accepted consensus that there is no one source of renewable energy that can replace the current one and no specific type can provide all of our energy demands for the future. As such, this workshop on renewable energies tackles two of the promising energy sources—thermoelectrics and photovoltaics—that support a sustainable future.

The thermoelectric section of this workshop tackles on the recent development of thermoelectric materials and provides a blue print for new researchers interested in this area of work. The invited speakers both from academe and industry would surely deliver a fruitful and stimulating discussion through their years of experience and insights.

The photovoltaic section of this workshop provided a great opportunity to discuss the most relevant issues in organic solar cells—advanced material designs, new processing methods, device characterization, and large-scale fabrication—and invited several leading researchers to share their scientific views in these aspects. The workshop included five plenary lectures and four invited talks.

This 2-day workshop is part of the 20th anniversary celebration of the Institute of Atomic and Molecular Sciences, Academia Sinica and the continuing efforts of their members to provide quality and relevant research to society.
