■ Abstract : One of the paramount challenges for a sustainable society is the conversion of solar energy into a vector suitable for storage. Solar energy can be stored with battery technology by converting it into electricity via photovoltaic (PV) cells; however, producing H2 fuel via photoelectrochemical (PEC) water splitting is a more efficient solution for long-term storage. In this talk, I will present an overview on solar to hydrogen conversion technologies including PEC and photocatalytic water splitting, as well as PV + electrolysis. More details in fundamentals, research trends and future perspectives in PEC water splitting will be discussed, covering materials synthesis and advanced characterization methods.
