Energy

It’s no secret the world needs to rapidly reduce carbon emissions. We must significantly improve existing energy-generation technologies, at scale, and develop entirely new ones – something our specialist energy researchers work on tirelessly each day.

The unique interface of bioengineering and nanotechnology has enabled us to develop specific technology platforms including solar cells, the next generation of safer, more energy efficient and environmentally friendly batteries, carbon capture and green aviation fuels.

 

Case studies

Our breakthrough solar power technology – a flexible, printable ‘skin’ that can be applied to hard surfaces – has set a world record for the conversion of solar energy to electricity.
