The energy transition has become one of the most pressing challenges of the current era, in that it seeks the profound transformation of the current energy system to cleaner, more sustainable energy sources.
To achieve this necessary change, at AIMPLAS, we are working on three basic research lines: renewable energies, batteries and the use of hydrogen as an energy resource.
Renewable energies are emerging as a promising alternative to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels. The development of materials for renewable energy production has become essential. These materials play a crucial role in the development and efficiency of technologies such as organic photovoltaics.
Batteries play a key role in the storage of energy from renewable sources and electric mobility. In order to improve their storage capacity, efficiency and lifetime, AIMPLAS is researching polymer electrolytes and plastic materials for battery components. In addition, the recycling of plastic battery components is key to reducing their environmental impact and promoting a circular economy in the energy sector.
Hydrogen is emerging as an attractive alternative for energy storage and transport. Storage and transport systems for H2 are key to ensuring its viability as an energy source. At AIMPLAS, we are also working on the development of materials for the production and use of hydrogen to optimize the processes of obtaining, storing and using this gas.
