Splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen presents an alternative to fossil fuels, but purified water is a precious resource. A Stanford-led team has now developed a way to harness seawater – Earth’s most abundant source – for chemical energy.
Always good quality when refueling with hydrogen, no impurities that damage the fuel cell: Professor Andreas Schütze and his research team from Saarland University are working with partners to develop a sensor system that constantly monitors the quality and purity of hydrogen directly at the fuel pump.
Hydrogen production based on wind power can already be commercially viable today. Until now, it was generally assumed that this environmentally friendly power-to-gas technology could not be implemented profitably. Economists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), the University of Mannheim and Stanford University have now described, based on the market situations in Germany and Texas, how flexible production facilities could make this technology a key component in the transition of the energy system.
The Baden-Württemberg Minister of the Environment Franz Untersteller and Minister of Economics Nicole Hoffmeister-Kraut have asked the Federal Government in a joint letter to financially support the project “HyFab-Baden-Württemberg – Research Facility for Fuel Cells and Hydrogen”.
Bioscience engineers at KU Leuven have created a solar panel that produces hydrogen gas from moisture in the air. After ten years of development, the panel can now produce 250 litres per day – a world record, according to the researchers. Twenty of these solar panels could provide electricity and heat for one family for an entire year.
SANTA BARBARA, CA — HyperSolar, Inc. (OTCQB: HYSR), the developer of a breakthrough technology to produce renewable hydrogen using sunlight and any source of water, announced today that the stability test of its proprietary fully integrated hydrogen production device had reached 566 hours breaking the company’s own record for wireless self-contained solar hydrogen device. The design of the device will serve as the foundation of the Company’s first generation commercial renewable hydrogen generator.
Washington University in St. Louis Develops High-powered Fuel Cell that Boosts Electric-Powered Submersibles, DronesFebruary 26, 2019
The transportation industry is one of the largest consumers of energy in the U.S. economy with increasing demand to make it cleaner and more efficient. While more people are using electric cars, designing electric-powered planes, ships and submarines is much harder due to power and energy requirements.
The HyCARE project starts: Consortium includes University of Turin, Environment Park, Bruno Kessler Foundation and the Tecnodelta company
A new method of increasing the reactivity of ultrathin nanosheets, just a few atoms thick, can someday make fuel cells for hydrogen cars cheaper, finds a new Johns Hopkins study.
