Light to Store chemical Energy in reduced Graphene Oxide for electricity generation

Project description

Reduced graphene oxide: Affordable and green supply of electrical power on demand

Electricity generation based on renewables is unpredictable, but hydrogen (H2) could be a promising energy storage route. Since over 95% of H2 comes from breaking the carbon-hydrogen bond in hydrocarbons, storing hydrogen bound to carbon may provide a long-term solution. However, extracting hydrogen from liquid hydrocarbons includes CO2 emissions. To address this problem, the EU-funded LESGO project aims to store energy in the C-H bond of reduced graphene oxide (rGO-H). The advantages of rGO-H include safe storage, easy transportation, an energy density over 100 times larger than that of H2 gas and no CO2 emissions in the electricity generation process. The project will promote an affordable and eco-friendly means of supplying electrical power on demand where required.
