SolarPACES Report: Roadmap to Solar Fuels

Thursday, 29 October 2015 10:43

The roadmap to solar fuels project aims at enhancing industry involvement in solar fuels production and promoting market penetration of the most mature solar fuels technologies. For this purpose, two sun-rich countries – Australia and South Africa – have initially been chosen to organize workshops together with external SolarPACES experts, with the aim of presenting to targeted local industry and governments the state-of-the-art and discuss with them the market potential of the most advanced technologies for solar fuels production. Subsequent to the successful first phases, China recently joined as third country. This study is a role model for broadening the effort, offering finally the whole SolarPACES community to benefit from the country-specific roadmaps and the methodology developed.
