Conductivity-enhanced materials could lead to transformational technologies in applications ranging from electric cars, trains, and planes, to smartphones, heat pumps and everything else in our daily lives that involves the conduction of electric and thermal energy.

To capture the benefits of such materials, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO), hosted its second annual workshop on Conductivity-enhanced materials for Affordable, Breakthrough, Leapfrog Electric and thermal applications (CABLE) to help supercharge our U.S. energy and manufacturing industries.

The hybrid workshop convened experts in metallurgy, carbon nanomaterials, materials science, materials modeling and simulation, metal matrix composites, conducting polymer and many other key science and engineering disciplines. It accelerated networking for R&D partners in the CABLE research ecosystem and collect stakeholder perspectives on the connection between the science underpinning new materials and their real-world manufacturability.
