Abstract: 

The SunStorage project envisages to research and develop direct and efficient conversion of sunlight into storable chemical and electrochemical fuels. A particular highlight the project aims to achieve is the usage of a PEC device to convert sunlight into electrochemical energy in a redox flow battery (RFB), and the conversion of CO2 into CO and into MeOH.
