CAM-IES Research Programmes


The research programmes develop advanced materials for energy storage, specifically solid-state batteries, coatings for high voltage electrode battery materials and flow batteries, and also for energy conversion, specifically solid-oxide fuel cells, CO2 gas separation membranes, hybrid thin film photovoltaics and large-area thermoelectrics.

CAM-IES exploits currently unexplored synergies between different energy fields, and combines fundamental energy materials research aimed at making significant scientific breakthroughs, including the discovery of new materials, understanding and controlling interfaces, novel integrated device concepts and achieving enhanced device performances.

The research programmes are focused around six work packages aimed at addressing key scientific challenges:
