Research Programmes

Research Programmes:

The research programmes will develop advanced materials for energy storage, specifically solid-state batteries, coatings for high voltage electrode battery materials and flow batteries, and also energy conversion, specifically solid-oxide fuel cells, CO2 gas separation membranes, hybrid thin film photovoltaics and large-area thermoelectrics.

The Centre will exploit currently unexplored synergies between different energy fields, and combine fundamental energy materials research aimed at making significant scientific breakthroughs, including the discovery of new materials, understanding and controlling interfaces, novel integrated device concepts and achieving enhanced device performances.

The research programmes are focused around six work packages aimed at addressing key scientific challenges:
