Title：Electrospun Flexible Energy Devices
Smart textiles are a convenient platform to deploy electromechanical systems and internet of things (IoT); thereby making the textile electronics as a fast-growing industry with a predicted global market of US$ 9.3 billion by 2024. The smart textiles integrate the state-of-the-art electronic gadgets such as sensors, actuators, controllers, displays, and others in consumer clothing; and powering these gadgets is a critical issue. One of the most viable approaches to power the smart textiles electronics is to develop energizers (solar cells, piezoelectric cells, batteries and supercapacitors) into the fundamental constituent of the cloth, for example, fibers (or synonymously yarns) as energy conversion and storage system. This lecture will focus on the current state of flexible energy devices developed by electrospinning, both in the lecturer’s laboratory and elsewhere, and foreseeable initiatives required to leverage the laboratory developments to the commercial sector. Of particular interest will be supercapacitors, perovskite solar yarns, and piezoelectric yarns.

Title: Analysis and Countermeasures of China’s Green Electric Power Development
The green development of electric power is a key measure to alleviate the shortage of energy supply, adjust the energy structure, reduce environmental pollution and improve energy efficiency. Firstly, the situation and challenges of China’s power green development is analyzed. On this basis, the power green development models are categorized into two typical research objects, which are multi-energy synergy mode, represented by integrated energy systems, and multi-energy combination mode with clean energy participation. The key points of the green power development model with the consumption of new energy as the core are reviewed, and then China’s exploration of the power green development system and the latest research results are reviewed. Finally, the key scientific issues facing China’s power green development are summarized and put forward targeted countermeasures and suggestions.
