Renewable Energy

Stanford researchers are exploring a wide range of promising technologies and policy options to improve the efficiency and lower the cost of energy produced from the sun, wind, biomass and geothermal resources. In the area of solar energy, scientists and engineers are working at the nanoscale to develop high-efficiency photovoltaic devices that are reliable and practical, as well novel technologies that exploit both light and heat from the sun. Researchers are also developing renewable fuels from wastewater, electrochemical catalysts, water-splitting devices, cellulosic biomass and microbial reactors.
