Materials for energy and devices

The energy materials research explores applications related to energy generation and storage as well as development of novel electrically conducting materials.

Energy materials

Our research on generating materials and structures explores a variety of functional materials for fuel cells, electrolysis of water, vibration energy harvesting and thermal energy harvesting.

Research on novel energy storage material architectures gives rise to improvements in electrical storage capacity and power delivery alongside potential to deliver multipurpose energy storage systems capable of not only storing electrical energy but also acting as structural components.

The work on novel conducting materials not based on conventional metallic materials focuses on delivering conductive ceramics, transparent conductors, and ultraflexible conductors. The energy materials research theme brings together all branches of materials to deliver unique solutions for the energy sector.
