Energy storage and chemical bonding: New pathways in fundamental energy research
Molekulare Theorie und Spektroskopie
SummaryThe necessity for a sustainable energy economy beyond fossil fuels and nuclear energy has nowadays found broad consensus. The transformation of the present technologies is a huge challenge for society as a whole, which will dominate the following decades politically and economically. Basic research can deliver insights, which will lead to novel and essential technologies. With the foundation of the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion the MPG has set the course for this important development.
