Energy and catalysis research in the Department ranges from the industrially-sponsored to the fundamentally-focused and involves work on homogeneous, heterogeneous, photo, electrochemical and bio-catalysis in close collaboration with the other research groups, focusing mainly on green chemistry methodologies, biomass to fuels and chemicals, catalytic mechanisms, thermo-materials and electrochemical energy storage. The recently-founded Stephenson Institute for Renewable Energy will play a leading role in renewable energy research.
