Emission-Free Hydrogen Production from Solar Energy: HZB’s Direct Approach
Here’s an article posted in PV Magazine.
According to the article,
- Traditional production takes the “indirect” approach using solar and wind to power electrolyzers with round-trip efficiencies of around 30%.
- A research team at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) Institute for Solar Fuels is investigating the “direct” approach to emissions-free hydrogen production.
- They are developing photoelectrodes that convert sunlight into electrical energy and are stable in aqueous solutions.
