Materials for energy
The challenges in the area of materials for energy range from generation to cost-effectiveness via conservation, transmission, storage, carbon emissions, durability, reusability and recyclability.
Our Mechanics of Materials Research Group and Condensed Matter Physics Research Group research the industrial applications of novel materials in the fields of electronics, photovoltaics and energy.
Example of business collaborations
Successful business collaborations have led to the development of:
- Thin, transparent, photovoltaic film which can be applied to large surface areas including windows
- Methods utilising High Voltage Direct Current technology (HVDC)
