Energy Generation & Storage
This chapter covers energy applications of graphene and related materials. Graphene applications in energy vary from fuel cells, hydrogen generation and (gas) storage, batteries, supercapacitors to photovoltaics.
The most interesting application areas from a European innovation perspective for graphene innovation are supercapacitors and fourth-generation batteries. Hydrogen production and storage in addition to batteries are further interesting areas. In terms of photovoltaics, third generation PV is more likely to become interesting on a European level, with perovskites being the most promising application area for graphene.
