Energy Conversion and Storage
Materials chemists will help to develop new, sustainable energy conversion and storage technologies that can meet future energy demands without increasing harmful emissions of CO2.
Sustainable solar energy technologies can be developed that efficiently harvest energy from sunlight anywhere on the planet at lower costs
Innovative new fuel cells can efficiently exploit renewable sources of energy
Next-generation battery and chemical energy storage technologies will enable us to flexibly store and transport energy, and to fully utilise intermittent forms of energy such as solar and wind
Many of the goals outlined here should be achievable within a relatively short timescale, and will help to improve the world for this generation and the succeeding ones.
