2A Efficient generation of sustainable energy
Solar energy can be used to generate heat, electricity and fuels. This programme focuses on generation of electricity and related enabling technologies. This is a key technology for the transition towards a sustainable energy system, in particular in highly urbanised countries like The Netherlands. Very large-scale utilisation of these technologies requires the availability of easy-to-use, high performance, and low-cost systems. In this context, opportunities for the application of nanotechnology are numerous and great.
