Dr. Renzo Tomellini
Born in 1960. Graduated in chemistry “cum laude” in Rome in 1986. His further education included management and business administration, leadership, European law and regulations.
Originally researcher in the steel industry, his career within the European Commission started in 1991 managing research under the European Coal and Steel Community Treaty. Since 1999 he promoted initiatives in nanotechnology. He has been Head of the Unit “Nano- and Converging Sciences and Technologies”. Since 2008, he is Head of the Unit “Materials”.
Moreover: 4 patents (a new source for atomic spectroscopy and some innovative sensors), published some 50 articles, 4 standards on analysis and measurements, 12 books as editor and 2 as co-author, 2 newsletters and 3 web-pages created, and 4 films on science and research issues. He teaches university courses on knowledge management to post-graduates (masters).
Session: Industry of Energy Generation, Storage and Distribution
Materials roadmap enabling low carbon energy technologies
The Materials Roadmap has been elaborated by nearly hundred leading European scientists and industrial researchers. Their scientific assessments show that materials are at the core of developments in the 11 technologies that are covered: wind energy, photovoltaic energy, concentrating solar power, geothermal energy, electricity grids, electricity storage, bioenergy, carbon capture and storage, nuclear fission, hydrogen and fuel cells, and energy efficient materials for buildings. The Materials Roadmap focuses on material research and development and innovation activities for these low-carbon energy technologies for the next 10 years with market implementation horizons for both 2020/2030 and 2050. It is designed to support coherent and strategic decisions on materials research in industry and academia, both at European level and in EU member states, in line with FP7 and Horizon 2020 and with the priorities of the Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan).
