The search for new, environment friendly energy sources
All life on earth is dependent on energy. The sun is the first and largest energy source, but in order to cover the growing need for energy we have extracted energy from coal, oil, gas and nuclear power. But it has been at the expense of the environment. Now, new, cleaner energy sources are needed. Around in Sweden, as in the rest of the world, research is ongoing to find new solutions. It concerns special designed molecules, unique nanomaterials, new smart solar cells and artificial photosynthesis. Meet Charlotte Platzer Björkman, Uppsala University, Per Eklund, Linköping University, Johannes Messenger, Umeå University and Kasper Moth Poulsen, Chalmers University of Technology.
