We’re a global team of scientists with one goal:

make a carbon neutral fuel from

sunlight, water and air.

Help us fight climate change and solve the energy crisis. Join us.

The SOFI team dreams big. We believe the development of a carbon neutral solar fuel is the greatest energy opportunity of our lifetime. Using just sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water, we can create a clean liquid fuel that could someday power our cars, airplanes, and homes without contributing to climate change. But it won’t happen without a commitment to supporting research and collaboration. Our members include academic pioneers and industry leaders who are dedicated to working together, with us, to shape a new energy landscape. 


“I want Americans to win the race for the kinds of discoveries that unleash new jobs: converting sunlight into liquid fuel - President Obama, State of the Union

Imagine if all it took was sunlight, water and carbon dioxide to create a liquid fuel that could power our cars and planes. We’re working to make this a reality. SOFI’s Demo Project is a cutting edge partnership between scientists, engineers, and businesspeople dedicated to creating a first of its kind integrated system that makes fuel from sunlight. But we can’t do it without your help.
