Low-temperature carbon dioxide (CO2) electrochemical reduction technology is a hotspot for research and development in recent years as a way to reduce the negative impact of CO2 on the environment and to generate energy storage through converting electricity to low-carbon fuels. Although basic research on catalyst activity, product selectivity, and reaction mechanism has been widely reported, the design and practicality of catalytic stability and corresponding electrochemical reactor systems have not been given sufficient attention and systematic development. In this paper, two important factors affecting the development of CO2 electrochemical reduction technology in low temperature aqueous solution (catalyst and reaction system developments) are summarized. From the perspective of technical application requirements and based on the current research and development status, the main challenges are discussed. Some suggestions for future research directions are suggested to overcome the challenges.
