New energy technologies can make it possible to harness sources that are all around us but which have been underutilized. However, new forms of energy present numerous challenges, including the economic efficiency of conversion to a desired form (such as electricity or fuels), the practicality of energy storage, and the complexity of grid integration. Research projects within these six themes will develop new, more efficient and economical technologies for renewable energy production, while supporting their integration into current infrastructure.
