Energy Generation

Work Package 11

The aim of the Graphene Flagship’s Energy Generation Work Package is to fabricate new graphene and layered material-based photovoltaic panels and hydrogen fuel cells.

Our objective is to develop large-scale competitive systems for both of these technologies, which already exist as industrialscale products. We do this by designing new materials and production processes to obtain better performance values, longer stabilities and lower costs when translated to an industrial scale.

We are closely collaborating with several Graphene Flagship partner companies: Italian-based manufacturing company Breton, photovoltaics manufacturer GreatCellSolar and graphene-based fuel cell and catalyst development company Amalyst.

Thanks to the Graphene Flagship and our partnership with these companies, we have achieved several record-breaking devices with performance values that are better than the state-of-the-art.
