Specialization: Energy Materials

Developments of alternative energy technologies are important to reduce the dependency on fossil fuels and effective utilization of renewable energy sources. Here in energy materials research, we focus on the development of materials for energy harnessing, storage, and conversion. The department is effectively involved in the development of technology related to Photovoltaic cells (Solar cells), Solid oxide fuel cells, electrochemical energy storage solutions ranging from rechargeable Li/Na-ion batteries, aqueous batteries, pseudocapacitors and Supercapacitors and solid-state hydrogen storage technologies.
