Program ENERGY-2007-3.5-01. European Solar-Fuel Initiative
Coordinator: UVHAGEN ANTONI Margareta (University of Uppsala, Sweden)


SOLAR-H2 brings together 12 world-leading European laboratories to carry out integrated, basic research aimed at achieving renewable hydrogen (H2) production from environmentally safe resources. The vision is to develop novel routes for the production of a Solar-fuel, in our case H2, from the very abundant, effectively inexhaustible resources, solar energy and water.

The project integrates two frontline research topics: artificial photosynthesis in man-made biomimetic systems, and photobiological H2 production in living organisms.
