General

Energy

The activities will be focused on the development of technologies for portable energy sources to be used in space human robotics applications, also exploitable in very important industrial areas such as automation and robotics, portable electronics and automotive. The research is organized in two main directions:

  • innovative systems for energy production: development of flexible, all-solid third generation photovoltaic devices; design and development of innovative systems for the harvesting of mechanical energy;
  • investigation of innovative materials for fuel cells and hydrogen production;
  • innovative systems for energy storage: application of polymeric materials, solid electrolytes and nanostructured electrodes in flexible batteries.

The efforts are focused on the development of demonstrators of photovoltaic systems based on new materials, structures and design. An attempt is also made for applying the new electrolytes and nanostructured contacts in flexible batteries for energy storage.
