CCI Solar - an NSF Center for Innovation in Solar Fuels

CCI Solar research focuses on one of the “holy-grails” of 21st Century chemistry – the efficient and economical conversion of solar energy into stored chemical fuel. CCI Solar investigators are targeting the critical science underpinning the solar-driven decomposition of water into hydrogen and oxygen. The technological, environmental, economic, and social benefits of renewable solar fuels cannot be overstated: every human being on Earth would be impacted by the development of sustainable energy resources. The CCI Solar research team is actively engaged to bring this goal to fruition. (Project Overview)
