The storage of intermittent solar energy in chemical bonds, i.e. Solar Fuels, is the most promising way to a future greener energy infrastructure. Chemical specificity in the investigation of the multiscale transient phenomena during semiconductor-driven photoelectrochemical (PEC) redox reactions is the key to a comprehensive understanding and modelling of the processes occurring in Solar Fuel generators. Interfacial energetics and dynamics crucially determine the performance of semiconductor photoelectrodes for (solar) chemical energy conversion.
