Over the past decades, low-carbon energies have emerged as a strategic priority to decrease CO2 releases in the atmosphere and so to limit the global warming. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a United Nations body for assessing the science related to climate change, includes as low-carbon energies: renewable energies, nuclear energy and carbon capture and storage.
The development of these energies rises corrosion issues presented and discussed during the workshop. For instance, the capture and storage of carbon technology needs the improvement of the understanding of the reaction mechanisms and interactions with the different materials used in gaseous, dissolved, dense phase and supercritical CO2. The development of geothermal energy is also linked to the selection of appropriate materials. Near-shore and off-shore wind turbines face seawater corrosion together with seawater turbines. In nuclear energy, corrosion issues are mainly related to safety, availability and economy. For solar energies, corrosion phenomena are also encountered both in photovoltaic and in thermal solar technologies.
This interactive workshop provides the opportunity to learn and to exchange on corrosion issues and remedies in the new and developing fields of “green energies”.

In recent years, low carbon energy technologies have emerged as a strategic priority to decrease CO2 emissions and improve air quality. This workshop will focus on corrosion issues in what are often called “sustainable”, “green” or “near-neutral carbon” technologies, including energy production (renewables, biofuels…) and energy conversion and storage (batteries, hydrogen, CO2 storage…).
For instance, the development of geothermal energy is linked to the selection of appropriate materials under severe corrosion and scaling conditions. Near-shore and off-shore wind turbine structures face seawater corrosion, while the production of biofuels from vegetable waste also faces new corrosion challenges to be solved. In fuel cells, electrolysers and batteries, corrosion issues are mainly related to performance, lifetime and safety. For solar power, corrosion phenomena are also encountered both in photovoltaic and in thermal solar technologies. Even well-established technologies such as hydroelectric power require advances in the performance of new materials and more reliable lifetime prediction.
This workshop provides the opportunity to learn and to exchange information on corrosion issues and mitigation strategies in the new and developing fields of “green energy”.
