Globally, the growth rate of the human population is increasing; creating a huge demand for energy to fulfill its requirements for vehicles, computers, air conditioning etc and this is leading to global warming. Therefore, CO2 -free energy is an emergent issue. The novel characteristics of nanomaterials, coupled with manipulation at atomic and molecular levels can contribute to the development of devices and technologies associated with carbon-free or low carbon energy applications.

In this presentation, technological developments underpinning the energy efficiency, storage and commercialisation of nanomaterials with particular reference to solar photovoltaic, hydrogen storage and fuel cells will be discussed. The presentation will highlight current and long-term challenges associated with research and industrial application on intelligent nanomaterials and systems for light-harvesting materials, which have potential direct benefits to society.
