A New Photoelectrochemical System for Solar Hydrogen and Electricity (2019–2022)

Abstract:
This project aims to develop a new integrated photoelectrochemical (PEC) system for converting solar energy into hydrogen and electricity simultaneously. The key concept is to design innovative advanced materials which will be integrated into PEC devices with capacitor function for both solar fuel production and electricity storage. This project expects to generate new knowledge in the fundamental mechanism understanding of functional materials for more efficient solar energy conversion and storage. Expected outcomes include next generation advanced materials and technologies for sustainable energy utilisation. The successful completion of this project will position Australia at the frontier of the related research areas.
