MURAKAMI Takurou

I first developed an interest in solar energy when I was in high school. I was fascinated to learn that photosynthesis occurs in the plants that grow all around us but with a conversion efficiency of just 3%. I then considered that humans should use this abundant energy source more effectively. Solar power generation is a highly flexible approach for power generation with renewable energy, in terms of the range of locations where devices can be installed. I hope we can contribute to the realization of a system for the local production and consumption of energy.

Multijunction PV Team

Leader

SUGAYA Takeyoshi

Multijunction SCs featuring multiple combined cells are extremely efficient, but they have not been widely adopted due to restrictive manufacturing costs. Our Hydride Vapor Phase Epitaxy (HVPE) and smart stack technologies realize the low-cost manufacturing of multijunction SCs at an unprecedented level worldwide. We will further refine these technologies and introduce practical implementations.

Thermoelectrics and Thermal Management Team

Leader

OHTA Michihiro

Technologies for optimal heat control still have a way to go compared to electricity. This area is promising from both academic and engineering perspectives. Thermal energy often goes to waste and is released to the environment unused. We are one of the few research teams in the world conducting a wide range of research on thermoelectric energy conversion technologies to produce electricity from this “Mottainai” unused heat. By fully utilizing heat, we will help promote the efficient use of energy.

Fundamentals of Ionic Devices Research Team

Leader

KISHIMOTO Haruo

Our team is called the FINDER Team (Fundamentals of Ionic Devices Research Team). Our expertise is in clarifying the behavior of ions and electrons through electron microscopy and related technologies. We have cordial relationships with other research teams going back even before GZR's establishment, through the accommodation of equipment. Going forward, we will work to make the inspiring image of the zero emission society on the cover of this brochure into a reality through ongoing collaboration across the whole of the organization.

SAYAMA Kazuhiro

I have been involved in research of photocatalysis and artificial photosynthesis for more than 30 years, ever since I studied at college. I am very fortunate as a researcher to be in an environment where I can devote myself to a single field of study. At GZR, we have deployed a system to search for catalyst materials using robotic technology. This is a deeply familiar area to me, though I wish to actively incorporate new research methods.

HIMEDA Yuichiro

Facilities and infrastructure are crucial for the implementation of energy carrier technology using formic acid/methanol. We need the help of many different industrial partners in our research going forward. We believe that these collaborations will provide new technologies for generating high-pressure hydrogen from formic acid, and for supplying it to fuel cell vehicles (FCVs).

I have studied the separation of critical metals for many years, and I understand that this field is growing even more important owing to recent changes in international affairs and trends in decarbonization. We will contribute to the elimination of metal resource constraints in a zero emission society by establishing processes that can be put to practical use.
