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 Global Research Center for Environment and Energy based on Nanomaterials Science (GREEN) and NIMS Battery Research Platform; the former is a commissioned project of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science & Technology (MEXT), and the latter is an infrastructure facility for developing next-generation batteries. We are aiming for the world’s highest research center on energy and environmental materials with the aids of these infrastructures.
