Briefing:
  • Hydrogen Producing Solar Panel – Researchers from Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Belgium developed solar panel capable of producing up to 250 liters of hydrogen per day from moisture in air
  • Efficiency Improvements – Improved yields from 0.1% to 15% through technology refinements
  • Enabling Technologies – Include electrolysis system, which applies direct electric current to drive chemical reaction, paired with efficient atmospheric water absorption system
  • How It Works – Solar cells provide voltage to cause water molecules to react and split, producing hydrogen
  • Applications – Could power hydrogen-enabled cars, electric vehicles, as well as national gas grids
