FreeHydroCells Project

FreeHydroCells is a multi-partner Horizon Europe project led by University College Cork (UCC), Ireland (project ID: 101084261). The inspiration for the novel concept driving the FreeHydroCells project comes from the combined need to absorb as much solar energy as possible in a materials system while at the same time making sure the clean solar energy can be used productively by humans with minimal loss, in this case to make hydrogen fuel. If fully successful, FreeHydroCells could provide a low-cost, efficient, modular solar-to-chemical energy cell in a novel buried many-junction photoelectrochemical system design that has the potential to significantly impact the global energy supply market and assist in urgently needed climate action.

The consortium includes four teams from across UCC, who will collaborate with organisations from across Europe, including the Commissariat a l’Energie Atomique et aux Energie Alternatives (CEA), France; Rheinisch-Westfaelische Technische Hochschule Aachen (RWTH), Germany; Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR), Italy; Gesellschaft fur Angewandte Mikro und Optoelektronik mit Beschrankterhaftung GmbH (AMO), Germany; and BARDS Acoustic Science Labs (BARDS), Ireland. UCC Academy will support the project as the consortium’s research project management and communications partner.
