Solar Energy Conversion Research Cluster
Welcome to the Solar Energy Conversion (SEC) Cluster website. Funded through Science Foundation Ireland's Strategic Research Cluster Programme, it is the mission of this Cluster to develop new materials and synthesise devices that mimic individually and as a whole the steps involved in natural photosynthesis. Harnessing the "free energy" of the sun, together with the application of engineering, chemistry, biochemistry, physics and computational modelling, we are directing our research to the era-defining need of our times: sustainable energy production.
