PILLAR 1 – NANO for ENERGY

PARALLEL SESSION 1.2 Advanced Materials and Nanotechnologies for Harnessing Solar Energy

The field of energy harvesting advanced materials is in focus. Recent progress in the understanding of fundamental mechanisms and principles of photosynthesis make it now possible to contemplate developing in a reasonable timeframe artificial photosynthesis technologies to make sustainable fuels and commodity chemicals using sunlight as the only energy source. These cutting-edge technologies will be discussed during this session, alongside with developments of advanced materials in more classical solar technologies.
