Electrochemical and photochemical reduction of CO2, or a smart combination of both, are appealing approaches for the storage of renewable, intermittent energies and may lead to the production of fuels and of value-added chemicals. By using only earth-abundant metal (Cu, Ni, Co, Mn, Fe) complexes, cheap electrodes and/or cheap sacrificial electron donors and visible light sensitizers, systems functioning with molecular catalysts have been recently designed, showing promising results, in particular, for the two-electron reduction of the carbon dioxide. By combining experimental and mechanistic studies, key parameters controlling the catalysis efficiency have been deciphered, opening the way to the design of future, more efficient and durable catalysts, as well as to the development of electrochemical or photoelectrochemical cells, all being key steps for the emergence of applied devices. The most recent advances related to these issues are discussed in this review.
