Grant awarded to Lianzhou Wang and Yang Bai for photoelectrochemical systems

30 Nov 2018

Professor Lianzhou Wang, Dr Yang Bai and Professor Akihiko Kudo are awarded a Discovery Project Grant for research into new photoelectrochemical system for solar hydrogen and electricity. 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 understanding the fundamental mechanism of developing functional materials for more efficient solar energy conversion and storage. Expected outcomes include prototypes of the next generation advanced materials and technologies for sustainable energy utilisation systems for converting solar energy into hydrogen and electricity.
