UD researchers provide new method to boost clean energy research
Electrochemical energy systems — processes by which electrical energy is converted to chemical energy — are at the heart of establishing more efficient generation and storage of intermittent energy from renewable sources in fuel cells and batteries.
A KAIST team presented an ideal electrode design to enhance the performance of high-temperature fuel cells. The new analytical platform with advanced nanoscale patterning method quantitatively revealed the electrochemical value of metal nanoparticles dispersed on the oxide electrode, thus leading to electrode design directions that can be used in a variety of eco-friendly energy technologies.
- Queensland celebrates the state’s first ever delivery of green hydrogen to Japan
- As part of the 2018-19 State Budget, $750,000 was allocated to investigate opportunities to produce and supply hydrogen at a competitive price to alternative energy sources
Queensland University of Technology (QUT) has taken part in the first production and export of “green hydrogen” derived from water from Australia to Japan in a major step towards the development of a new sustainable fuel export market.
Hydrogen as a potential fuel source could revolutionize global energy consumption. Not only is hydrogen abundant and renewable, it is also a clean energy source with no harmful emission byproducts.
A San Diego State University researcher has come one step closer to harnessing the power of hydrogen as a reliable and inexpensive fuel. Inorganic chemist Jing Gu and collaborators at Princeton University developed a process to recover energy and electrons from organics in wastewater and generate hydrogen simultaneously using only solar energy.
UMass Lowell invention makes vehicles run clean longer
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Nanoparticles composed of nickel and iron have been found to be more effective and efficient than other, more costly materials when used as catalysts in the production of hydrogen fuel through water electrolysis.
A system that stores renewable energy as hydrogen and is safer for home use than lithium-ion batteries is on the horizon for researchers at UNSW Sydney.
Researchers at UNSW Sydney with partners H2Store have received a $3.5 million investment from Providence Asset Group to develop a first-of-its-kind hydrogen storage system that could mean cheaper, safer storage for renewable energy.
Researchers at Colorado School of Mines have shown that protonic ceramic fuel cells can be used reversibly, both to efficiently generate electricity and to store that power in the form of chemical fuel at times of lower demand.
