VTT Solves the Challenges of Zero Emission Hydrogen Technology using a Reversible Solid Oxide Fuel CellNovember 27, 2019
Reversible fuel cell electrolyser produces hydrogen and electricity from hydrogen in an emission-free manner with excellent efficiency
UD startup W7energy awarded $3.4M in Department of Energy funding. W7energy, a startup company with roots at the University of Delaware, just got a proverbial shot in its research arm.
In a collaborative project led by the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE, with the participation of the Ilmenau University of Technology, scientists have achieved an unprecedented level of solar cell efficiency: 24.3 percent of sunlight absorbed by monolithic silicon-grown III-V triple cells is generated in converted into electrical or chemical energy – a milestone in the development of new solar cells that could replace conventional silicon solar cells in the future.
Scientists Take Giant Stride Towards Entirely Renewable Energy Using Electricity to Produce HydrogenNovember 14, 2019
Scientists from Trinity have taken a giant stride towards solving a riddle that would provide the world with entirely renewable, clean energy from which water would be the only waste product.
Seawater is one of the most abundant resources on earth, offering promise both as a source of hydrogen – desirable as a source of clean energy – and of drinking water in arid climates. But even as water-splitting technologies capable of producing hydrogen from freshwater have become more effective, seawater has remained a challenge.
Researchers at Tokyo Institute of Technology, University of Tsukuba, and colleagues in Japan report a promising hydrogen carrier in the form of hydrogen boride nanosheets1.
A new method of extracting hydrogen from water more efficiently could help underpin the capture of renewable energy in the form of sustainable fuel, scientists say.
For the first time, researchers demonstrate high contrast imaging of water states for fuel cell applications and indicate how their new method can be applied to other hydrogen-relevant industrial processes
