The Solar Fuels Network promotes and supports the UK-wide solar fuels research community to develop ways of using sunlight to make fuels from abundant resources such as water and carbon dioxide.

The programme is funded by EPSRC through the RCUK Energy Programme. It received £250,000 funding to run for three years, beginning 1 August 2013 with a projected end date of 31 July 2016 (Grant number: EP/K027468/1).

The network was proposed by Energy Futures Lab alongside Imperial's Department of Chemistry. The Solar Fuels Network's administrator post is based in the Energy Futures Lab office.
