Abstract

Challenges and opportunities in multi-scale computational modeling of (photo-) electrocatalytic processes

Author(s): Tadashi Ogitsu

Renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind energies, are intermittent in nature and show large variation in its geographical distribution, leading to necessity of scalable energy storage and re-distribution solutions. Hydrogen and hydrogen rich organic species are good candidates for such energy carrier due to its abundance of constituent elements and their high energy densities that stems from the low atomic weight of hydrogen. While methodologies for synthesizing such energy carriers already exist, further improvements are necessary for accelerating mass deployment of renewable energy.
