The Center for Innovation on New Energies (CINE) was established with a pivotal mission: to spearhead Brazil's energy transition. Our recent participation in the Shell.ia 2023 conference in Bangalore, India, shed light on a pressing global imperative—accelerating the development and efficiency of future energy systems. The message resounding from the conference was clear: the world must ramp up its efforts to embrace green energy alternatives in the face of mounting climate challenges. As a stark reminder, the recent spate of devastating floods worldwide, including in southern Brazil, coupled with an impending drought in the Amazon region, underscores the urgency of our commitment to sustainable energy solutions.
The Shell.ai conference's central focus on the digital impact on materials design and acceleration, featuring cutting-edge techniques such as machine learning and data mining, resonates profoundly with our commitment to innovation. In our relentless pursuit of progress, CINE is well-positioned to lead the way. Through rigorous foundational research into emerging materials and processes, complemented by technology upscaling, we aim to shape the future of energy systems. Our work, particularly in the realm of computational materials design, continues to drive pioneering advancements in materials, reinforcing our unwavering dedication to sustainable energy solutions and the global fight against climate change.
CINE remains steadfast in its mission to drive innovation and make a tangible impact on the future of energy. With a resolute commitment to sustainable solutions and collaborative efforts, we are poised to play a pivotal role in the critical journey toward a greener, more sustainable world.
