SOFI is being organized as a global consortium of research and development organizations that will develop the technology required to establish a solar fuels industry using largely
private capital. SOFI’s overarching goal is the development of
efficient, cost-effective photovoltaic and photocatalytic systems to
capture sunlight that are integrated with high performance
catalysts for water splitting and reduction of CO2 to liquid fuels.
This consortium of laboratories will work closely together to
generate the intellectual and collaborative resources needed meet
this goal. A solid management approach will maximize success.
