It's necessary to reduce the amount of energy consumed at the demand side like vehicles and household appliances and to promote renewable energy in order to make the transition to a low-carbon economy. Energy conservation in daily life must be achieved with safety and environmental acceptability - namely, through "green innovation" that promotes the economic growth and environmental protection together. To attain the propose, our Research Institute of Electrochemical Energy (RIECEN) aims to develop highly efficient power sources for the transportable and stationary use, notably advanced rechargeable batteries (secondary batteries) and fuel cells. We are currently engaged in organized research and development, ranging from basic materials research to systemization investigation.
