Nanostack printing for materials research

Project description

Stacking the odds in favour of renewable energy

Harnessing the power of renewable energy will help mitigate climate change and its impact since it doesn't involve carbon dioxide emissions. There is just one drawback: energy storage. There needs to be a way to store excess energy gathered from the sun and wind. The EU-funded NANOSTACKS project has found a solution to overcome the difficulty of storing this energy in very large quantities and in high energy density. The solution is a novel screening method to find efficient fuel cells that rely on cost-efficient materials. It will use a robot to print battery, fuel cell and LED materials as well as conductors, isolators and diodes, and screen some 15 000 twin nanostacks per glass slide for function. According to the project, this new method will not only lead to novel energy materials but greatly advance materials research in general.
