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.
Sodium is one of the most abundant and affordable metals in the world. Now researchers at Graphene Flagship partner Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden, present a concept that allows sodium ion batteries to match the capacity of today's lithium-ion batteries.
Environmentally friendly production methods lead to more sustainable graphene-based products and devices.
From satellite heat pipes to advanced technologies for Antarctic research, Meganne Christian works on projects and ideas to bring graphene to extreme environments.
Welcome to the home of the future.
On 1 February 2021, Patrik Johansson took on the position of Vice Director for the Graphene Flagship. Johansson will replace Vincenzo Palermo who served as Graphene Flagship Vice Director for three years.
