Environment / Energy

Photonics plays a key role in reducing pollution through the development of renewable energy and environmental monitoring tools. Several benefits come from what is known as green photonics, including advances in renewable energy, carbon emission reduction, pollution reduction, reduced energy consumption, improved drinking water quality and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.

Sectors concerned

    • Agri-food
    • Agriculture
    • Renewable energy (solar, energy efficient lighting, wind)
      • Manufacturing sector
      • Communications
      • Entertainment

Possible technology applications

      • Semiconductor lighting
      • Solar panels
      • Measuring aerosol emissions
      • Environmental and air quality monitoring
      • Detection applications
      • Photovoltaic electricity
      • And many more
