Cheap Green Hydrogen Without External Energy Input Using Solar Device Developed by University Of Michigan

Here’s an article posted in New Atlas.

According to the article,

  • A team of researchers from the University of Michigan has developed a photocatalytic device that can pull hydrogen out of seawater without needing any external energy input other than sunlight.
  • The device harnesses a broad spectrum of sunlight, including the infrared spectrum, to split water at a solid 9% efficiency – nearly a tenfold improvement from other devices of its kind.
