TMS Energy

TMS Energy is a strategic initiative of The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS). Its goals are to provide leadership, facilitation, and resources that initiate and support effective energy solutions based on the innovative development and use of materials.

EnergyA key element of TMS Energy is projects that convene the best knowledge and expertise to formulate strategies, develop resources, and generate new thinking on addressing global energy needs through materials solutions, particularly in partnership with other professional societies, government agencies, and organizations. Projects have included:

Linking Transformational Materials and Processing for an Energy Efficient and Low-Carbon Economy: Creating the Vision and Accelerating Realization

TMS was commissioned by the Department of Energy Advanced Manufacturing Office in February 2010 to lead a three-part study into areas where new materials and processing breakthroughs can lead to transformational advances in energy efficiency, energy security, and carbon emission reduction.
