Learn about the promise and challenges of creating liquid fuels from sunlight and carbon dioxide. Scientists at Berkeley Lab’s Liquid Sunlight Alliance (LiSA) are working to overcome the technological and scientific challenges that stand in the way of fully realizing these eco-friendly sources of the fuels and materials that still underpin our economies.
Researchers will tell the scientific story of solar fuels using a StoryMap, an interactive web-based multimedia platform for sharing narratives through photos, videos, writing, and illustrations. This story of promising scientific discoveries, next-generation green technology, and collaboration across multiple industries and institutions is an ideal chance to illustrate the real-world impact of science. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A with the researchers.
