NREL develops method to improve renewable hydrogen fuel production

Hydrogen Fuel Production - Renewable Energy

Researchers have found a way to improve the longevity of photocathodes Researchers from the U.S. National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) have developed a new method that is meant to enhance the longevity of photocathodes in photoelectrochemical (PEC) water-splitting devices. These devices are often used to generate hydrogen fuel through the use of solar power. A PEC device could be a promising way to produce renewable hydrogen fuel, as it is reliant on solar power rather than natural gas. The relatively short longevity of the photocathodes used by these devices has…

New hydrogen fuel production system could help jump start a hydrogen economy

Demand for hydrogen stations is growing quickly The demand for a hydrogen fuel infrastructure is growing, but building this infrastructure has proven both difficult and time consuming. Conventional hydrogen production methods are heavily reliant on fossil-fuels, which makes hydrogen, as a whole, less attractive than other forms of clean energy. Using wind or solar energy to power vehicles, however, is also unviable, which is why major automakers are focusing their efforts on hydrogen. Combining renewable energy and hydrogen fuel production may help fuel cells become more prominent in the transportation…
