The development of robust and inexpensive semiconducting materials that operate at high efficiency are needed to make the direct solar-to-fuel energy conversion by photoelectrochemical (PEC) cells economically viable. In this presentation the strategy of PEC solar fuel production is introduced and our laboratory’s progress in the development new light absorbing materials and co-catalysts will be discussed along with the application toward overall solar water splitting tandem cells for H2 production.

The southernmost continent holds much appeal for a variety of reasons. One century ago, visiting its icy shores posed a great challenge, while whales and seals were exploited as a natural resource. Today, Antarctica's fascinating but fragile ecosystem is embattled amidst climate change and the threat of its ores being extracted once the Antarctic Treaty may expire in 2041. This photo presentation offers a glimpse into the sparse Antarctic fauna and flora as well as the pristine beauty and serenity of its glaciers, icebergs, and clear waters.

Renewable power sources like solar and wind energy are intermittent, and this is associated with a number of challenges regarding balancing demand and supply of electricity. Generally, considering a year’s period, there are timeframes with excess power and with a shortage. A complication is that different timescales play a role in the balancing challenge. Energy storage is a way to solve this.
