Sustainable energy

Understanding excited-state processes and charge and energy transport is crucially important for developing practical sustainable energy solutions. We use quantum chemistry methods to understand the key steps relevant for solar energy harvesting, batteries, and fuel cells. Recent examples include computational studies of the singlet fission phenomenon and charge-transfer in electrochemically active bacteria.
