(Worcester Polytechnic Institute) Researchers at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), funded by two significant National Science Foundation grants and an award from the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center, are exploring new materials for solar cells that could boost their efficiency and make them less expensive to manufacture, and are developing new photocatalysts that may lower the cost of producing hydrogen using solar electricity (generating hydrogen with electrolysis could be an effective way to store solar energy until it is needed).
