Experts from the Graphene Flagship’s Energy Storage Work Package join the discussion
We are celebrating Energy Efficiency Day by reviewing our contributions to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 7: to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.
Graphene Flagship partnering project GraNiTe exploited graphene and layered materials to enhance transistors for communications, diagnostics and security
Chrysalis-shaped graphene and vanadium microstructures boost the performance of magnesium-based batteries as a sustainable alternative to lithium
Join Nobel Laureate Konstantin Novoselov and a panel of experts for an afternoon of insight into graphene’s role in the energy storage technologies of the future
Graphene is unlocking new possibilities within the energy sector, creating a more efficient and sustainable future.
We review the successes of six industry-based projects from the previous phase of the Graphene Flagship.
Researchers at Graphene Flagship partners Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, CIC EnergiGUNE and INCAR-CSIC, Spain, have produced rechargeable batteries and energy storage devices made of a non-toxic and environmentally friendly graphene-based material.
Learn about Graphene Flagship researchers at VARTA developing graphene enabled silicon batteries for wireless headphones, hearing aids, wearables, and small electronic devices.
Graphene Flagship researchers successfully combined graphene with tandem perovskite-silicon solar cells to achieve efficiencies of up to 26.3%. Moreover, they envisioned a new manufacturing method that, thanks to the versatility of graphene, allows to reduce production costs and could lead to the production of large-area solar panels.
The Graphene Flagship is looking for a new partner that brings in specific industrial and technology transfer competences or capabilities that complement the present consortium of the Spearhead Project GRAPES.
Graphene Flagship researchers have developed hybrids of graphene and MoS₂ quantum dots to stabilise perovskite solar cells.
Perovskite-based solar cells have record high efficiencies converting solar energy to electrical power, but suffer efficiency reductions at large areas. Researchers in the Graphene Flagship have overcome these limitations with graphene, making large area solar cells with superior performances.
The lifetime of perovskite solar cells is significantly enhanced by using few-layer Molybdenum disulfide flakes as an active buffer interface layer. Researchers from the Graphene Flagship show that interface engineering with layered materials is important for boosting solar cell performance.
