Fuel from the Sun: Artificial Photosynthesis

Fuel from the Sun: Artificial Photosynthesis Deadline: 2021-01-01
Award: €5,000,000
Open to: Everyone*

Due to its ability to use a combination of sunlight, water and carbon from the air to produce energy, artificial photosynthesis is regarded as a potential breakthrough energy technology.

The challenge is to build a fully functional, bench-scale prototype of an artificial photosynthesis based system which can produce a useable synthetic fuel.

The device to be built needs to integrate the whole process from light capture to fuel production and be capable of powering a small engine.

The prize will be awarded to the contestant(s) who will, in the opinion of the jury, demonstrate a solution that best meets the following cumulative criteria:

-Degree of system integration from light capture to fuel production
- Device/system performance
- Production of fuel that will be used in an engine
- Widest market potential
- Commercial potential of the device
