Developing a Sustainable Environment:
Smart Solar Energy Harvesting, Storage, and Utilization

Professor Jimmy Chai-mei YU, Professor Jianbin XU and Professor Xudong XIAO established a multi-disciplinary team consisted of more than 20 enthusiastic scholars for a research project “Smart Solar Energy Harvesting, Storage and Utilization”. The project is honored to be supported by the Hong Kong Research Grants Council’s (RGC) Theme-based Research Scheme (TRS), with a total project fund of HK$76 million. This project aimed at addressing the urgency of developing clean and renewable energy resources to replace fossil fuels, given the fast-growing demand for energy and the recognition of man-made global climate change…
