Prof. Davide Mencarelli gladly represented the GreEnergy project at the collaborative workshop entitled "Low-TRL Renewable Energy Technologies" which was organised as part of the 10th annual edition of Sustainable Places (SP2022) conference on 8 September 2022.
This collaborative workshop brought together 12 other EU-funded Horizon 2020 projects (all funded under the same H2020 call than GreEnergy), and should enable for future cooperation and synergies between these research projects - all dedicated to develop and demonstrate innovative, cost-competitive and environmentally safe technologies.

The 10th annual edition of Sustainable Places (SP2022) conference has just started today, as an hybrid event with the in-person sessions hosted in Nice, France.
As part of this conference, a collaborative workshop entitled "Low-TRL Renewable Energy Technologies" brings together a selection of H2020 EU-funded projects dealing with the challenge of researching, developing, and demonstrating innovative, efficient, flexible, cost-competitive, and environmentally safe technologies, which are still at a low Technological Readiness Level (TRL 3-4).
The UNIVPM team will represent GreEnergy at this collaborative workshop, with Prof. Davide Mencarelli and his PhD student Gian Marco Zampa giving a short talk to introduce the project's objectives, its concepts and approaches, as well as the first key results achieved so far.
The detailed programme and more info are available here.
Gian Marco, PhD student from UNIVPM, will gladly represent GreEnergy by giving a talk at the collaborative workshop on "Low-TRL Renewable Energy Technologies”, which will be organised as part of the Sustainable Places SP2022 conference on 08 September (14:00 - 17:30 CEST).
This collaborative workshop will be held with 12 other EU-funded Horizon 2020 projects (all funded under the same H2020 call than GreEnergy), enabling for strong cooperation and synergies between these research projects.
Detailed agenda, registration link and more info are available here.
Prof. Davide Mencarelli, from the UNIVPM team who belongs to the "modelling group" in GreEnergy, will give a webinar on 14 July 2022, as part of the IEEE Nanotechnology Council & IEEE Microwave Theory and Technology Society REGION 8 YPs webinar series.
During this webinar, Prof. Davide Mencarelli will present the modelling approaches used in the project for solar light harvesting and energy storage.
More specifically, energy harvesting devices require to integrate the energy-harvesting component in self-powering nano-systems. Prototypes of the integrated components will be developed incorporating nano-optical antennas with nano-rectifiers, namely rectennas, and micro-energy storage components. In GreEnergy, the modelling group has recently shown, through numerical simulations, that nanoarray antennas with small lattice pitch provide frequency flattening of the lattice impedance over the whole solar spectrum, eventually allowing for excellent matching with the antennas’ loads. Also, the small pitch allows for a smooth dependence of the receiving efficiency on the angle of incidence of sunlight. It is also shown numerically that the reflecting mirror also allows for an almost complete cancellation of light scattered by the receiving antennas. The final result is a polarization insensitive receiving theoretical efficiency over the whole solar spectral range.
