Graphene Solar Power for Sustainable Energy

Energy Generation - TEI Crete (Greece), University of Rome Tor Vergata (Italy), Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (Italy)
Creating large area perovskite solar cells with high power efficiency and long lifetimes is possible thanks to graphene. Interface engineering with graphene and related materials boosts stability and efficiency of solar cells. Graphene’s excellent electrical properties can be used to generate clean energy for a sustainable future.

Energy Super Storage for Mobile Power

Supercapacitors – Thales (France), Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (Italy)
Graphene supercapacitors store large amounts of energy and can charge and discharge rapidly. Graphene’s excellent electrical properties allow super-fast energy transport and storing up to 100 times more energy. Graphene supercapacitors will enable superfast charging of mobile devices and make high power more portable.

Graphene-Boosted Batteries

Pouch and Coin Cell Batteries – Cambridge Graphene Centre, University of Cambridge (UK)
Graphene batteries have improved energy storage and better performance over a lifetime of use and recharging. Adding graphene to the battery electrode improves energy capacity, lifetime and reliability. Our connected life is built on batteries. Graphene boosts performance to go further with mobile technology.

Heating and Cooling/Heat Flow
Being an excellent conductor, heat flows fast through graphene. Graphene-based heat management increases efficiency of heating and cooling. Graphene can be used to cool high-powered electronics for best performance, or also to create instant heat

Cooling High-Power Electronics

Thermal Management - Effective thermal management using graphene and other 2D materials – The University of Manchester (UK)
As electronics have become more compact with combined functionality, operating at faster speeds, this has been accompanied by an increase in the heat generated in these devices. The move towards the miniaturization and multi-functionality of electronics has increased demand for improved thermal management through the application of heat spreaders, thermal interface materials, and polymer composites.

Deep Freeze for Cryo-Electronics

Cryo Cooler Compressor – APR Technologies (Sweden), Chalmers University of Technology (Sweden), SHT (Sweden)
Using graphene, a miniaturised cooling pump cools electronic systems down to ultralow, cryogenic temperatures. The high efficiency of graphene and no moving parts means a more compact and reliable pump. This pump is therefore ideal for mobile ultralow cooling in satellites and security, communications and healthcare.

Smart Heat for Smart Textiles

Heating Membrane – BeDimensional (Italy)
Take heat anywhere with textile coupled with thin plastic membrane embedded with graphene network. This electrically activated membrane rapidly delivers heat, thanks to graphene’s excellent thermal properties. Therefore, graphene is excellent for smart heating textiles and delivering localised heat for outdoor activities or medical situations.

Advanced Heating Solutions

Heating modules – CNR (Italy)
The excellent thermal and electrical properties of graphene spread heat rapidly across graphene heating modules. Graphene heaters are chemically and thermally stable and prepared with a process scalable and environmentally friendly. Graphene-based heating modules can be easily integrated in many substrates suitable for aeronautical and automotive applications.
