The Energy Futures theme is concerned with advances in fundamental science and technology necessary to develop energy supplies that will replace fossil fuels and to meet CO2 emission targets. The Global Grand Challenge is to find new and innovative ways to deliver secure, clean and efficient energy and new technology for the production, distribution and storage of energy.

The Energy Futures theme currently concentrates on:

  1. Development of renewable energy sources including marine, wind, solar energy and nuclear fusion
     
  2. Development of systems and materials for more efficient storage of electricity, hydrogen and carbon
     
  3. Development of new materials for efficient energy usage: fuel cells, etc
