Queensland-China Alliance in Nanomaterials for Clean Energy Technologies (QCANCET) (2008–2013)
The research projects proposed for this Queensland-China Alliance aim to develop innovative materials that underpin emerging technologies for clean coal, hydrogen production, energy storage and hybrid and fuel cell vehicles. This initiative seeks to develop strategic links between Queensland-based world class researchers in nanomaterials and top researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The alliance builds upon the existing expertise and strengths in Queensland in nanomaterials development, and those in the Chinese Academy of Sciences in energy storage and fuel cell research. Expected outcomes include (1) cost effective technologies for alternative liquid fuels and enabling technologies for hydrogen production from clean coal processes, and from water splitting using solar energy; (2) a suite of novel materials for storing electric energy and hydrogen to be used in the new generation of hybrid vehicles and future fuel cell vehicles.
