Study: International Climate Negotiations

Press Release: New catalyst in water splitting could improve hydrogen generation

With hydrogen’s widely recognised role as a safe and clean energy carrier, research into its production, particularly from renewable sources, has intensified. One of several pathways to generate hydrogen is the separation of water using sunlight with the help of photocatalysts. Partially supported by the EU-funded DYNAPORE project, researchers have synthesised a new organic material for photocatalytic solar hydrogen production, or water splitting. Their findings were published recently in the journal ‘Nature Chemistry’.

Event: How to speed up sustainable finance? (Brussels, 28 November 2018)

With the publication of the Report of the HLEG on Sustainable Finance and the Commission’s Action Plan on Financing Sustainable Growth, sustainable finance is gaining momentum in Europe. Yet market practices are still largely based on neo-classical finance (efficient markets and portfolio theory) with little space for sustainability considerations in financial decision-making. The event will discuss which steps are needed to really change current practices and speed up sustainable finance. This event will be livestreamed. There is no need to register for the livestream.
