January 2, 2018 A collaborative effort of researchers with New Jersey Institute of Technology, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the Colorado School of Mines and San Diego State University resulted in the invention of a quantum dot photoelectrochemical cell that catalytically achieved quantum efficiency for hydrogen gas production exceeding 100% efficiency. … Continue reading
January 2, 2018 Researchers at Kyushu University have invented a ruthenium-driven device able to use a broad spectrum of light, including ultraviolet, visible, and near infrared light beyond visible red light. As a result, it nearly doubles the amount of solar photons harvested and the production of hydrogen is accelerated.
January 2, 2018 Researchers at Osaka University have developed a photocatalyst for producing hydrogen from water using inexpensive graphitic carbon nitride and black phosphorus in lieu of expensive metals. Of particular interest is that it works with different wavelengths of light, even low-energy, near infrared.
January 2, 2018 The European Marine Energy Centre, LTD has produced hydrogen gas using electricity generated from tidal energy in Orkney, a first anywhere in the world.
January 2, 2018 Hypersolar, Inc. has announced a patented nanoparticle solar hydrogen technology is designed to systematically produce hydrogen at the most cost-efficient rate possible. The goal for the GEN 2 system is $2.90 per Kg. While a high performance prototype has not been produced, significant progress has been made, … Continue reading
December 29, 2017 Researchers at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia, and at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have found that a newly developed compound, synthetic molybdenum-sulphide, acts as a semi-conductor and catalyses the splitting of water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen atoms. They discovered that mixing the compound with titanium … Continue reading
December 28, 2017 A systematic comparison of hydrogen production from fossil fuels, biomass resources and electrolysis has been jointly prepared by scientists from the North China Electric Power University (Beijing), Queen’s University (Belfast), and the College of Engineering Roorkee (India). The four pathways to hydrogen production considered in this research … Continue reading
December 27, 2017 Researchers at Columbia University have developed the first demonstration of a practical, floating, membrane-free and pump-free photovoltaic-driven electrolysis device. The device consists of platforms of solar-powered electrolyzers floating on the sea to generate hydrogen fuel. It uses electrodes made of sheets of titanium mesh suspended in water. … Continue reading
May 7, 2017 China’s University of Science and Technology reports that using solar energy to produce hydrogen and oxygen from water is a sustainable technology. A research group led by Professor Xiong Yujie has developed a class of noble-metal-free Z-scheme photocatalysts which exhibit an enhanced performance in photocatalytic hydrogen production … Continue reading
