1st paragraph : "As anthropogenic CO2 emissions continue to rise, the imperative for renewable energy sources grows stronger. To this end, there has been a strong demand to find reliable methods to store renewable sources, such as solar and wind, in the form of fuels for the more consistent deployment of renewable energy. One fuel-forming reaction that is easily adapted to renewable electricity is electrochemical CO2 reduction (CO2RR) to produce CO, which may be translated into liquid fuels by syngas processing. CO2RR to CO is a 2e, 2H+ process and accordingly confronts the challenge of suppressing the more thermodynamically favorable and competing hydrogen evolution reaction (HER)."
