Solar Energy and Rust Energy Innovation | The Energy Collective

Hydrogen fuel cells are emerging as key players in the clean energy landscape of the future, except for one problem: it takes lots of energy to make hydrogen, and in the US, the preferred source of that energy is natural gas.

UtilityTree‘s insight:

Photoelectrochemical cells (PECs) use solar energy to split water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen. They don’t produce electricity directly like photovoltaic cells do, but they could have a huge impact on the electric vehicle market by providing a path to cost-competitive fuel cells. That in turn would give the auto industry a low-cost, high-mileage alternative to conventional EV batteries.
