First Nanoscale Look At A Reaction That Limits The Efficiency Of Generating Clean Hydrogen Fuel by Glennda Chu

Transitioning from fossil fuels to a clean hydrogen economy will require cheaper and more efficient ways to use renewable sources of electricity to break water into hydrogen and oxygen. But a key step in that process, known as the oxygen evolution reaction or OER, has proven to be a bottleneck. Today it’s only about 75% […]

Better Solutions For Making Hydrogen May Lie Just At The Surface by Christina Nunez, Argonne National Laboratory

A clean energy future propelled by hydrogen fuel depends on figuring out how to reliably and efficiently split water. That’s because, even though hydrogen is abundant, it must be derived from another substance that contains it—and today, that substance is often methane gas. Scientists are seeking ways to isolate this energy-carrying element without using fossil […]

This Hydrogen Fuel Machine Could Be The Ultimate Guide To Self-Improvement by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Three years ago, scientists at the University of Michigan discovered an artificial photosynthesis device made of silicon and gallium nitride (Si/GaN) that harnesses sunlight into carbon-free hydrogen for fuel cells with twice the efficiency and stability of some previous technologies. Now, scientists at the Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab)-in collaboration […]
