Aiming for the world’s highest research center on energy and environmental materials

Our mission is developing energy and environment-related materials for realizing energy network systems that enable us to utilize a wide variety of energy.

In particular, we are developing materials for solar cells, solid-state batteries, lithium-air batteries, fuel cells, hydrogen production systems, thermoelectric devices, etc.; and electrode catalysts as a common material among these devices. Computational science and materials informatics for material design and mechanism elucidation are also our research subjects to accelerate the materials development.

This center includes NIMS Battery Research Platform which is an infrastructure facility for developing next-generation batteries and Research Center for Cryogenic Hydrogen and Materials. We are aiming for the world’s highest research center on energy and environmental materials with the aids of these infrastructures.
