MURAKAMI Takurou

I first developed an interest in solar energy when I was at 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 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 bring them to practical implementations.

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.

TAKAGI Hideyuki

We engage in many different themes of research, and the majority of our projects are carried out in collaboration with a wide range of companies and other organizations. I consider myself to be like a chef in the area of research and development. In light of social needs, I utilize, combine, and add seasoning to our results and knowledge, and then serve them to society. I believe that our mission is to work toward resolving social issues through collaboration and fusion while giving birth to entirely new ideas.

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).
