Synhelion and Top Hydrogen Firm Advance Solar Hydrogen

The ETH spin-off Synhelion is working on commercializing its very high-temperature solar thermochemical fuels (like jet fuel and hydrogen) and has already formed partnerships with several larger firms making cement or aviation fuel to advance step by step towards its goal of 100% carbon neutral fuels by 2030. DLR [...]

Could a Perovskite make Cheaper Solar Hydrogen?

A perovskite may be more cost-effective than ceria for solar-driven thermochemical hydrogen production, a new paper suggests. One perovskite formulation that works at a slightly lower temperature than ceria is explored by Xin Qian in the paper Outstanding Properties and Performance of CaTi0.5Mn0.5O3–d for Solar-Driven Thermochemical Hydrogen Production in research funded [...]

Integrated Hydrogen Sensor/Separation Module Provides Long-Term Boosts in Efficiency and Revenue in Solar Power Plants. NREL and Acciona Solar Power Develop Technology To Reverse Costly Effects of Hydrogen Buildup in Concentrating Solar Power Receiver Fields. Since the mid-'80s, concentrating solar power (CSP) plants have generated clean energy to power [...]

Which is the Most Efficient Way to Make Solar Fuels from Methane?



Solar fuels like hydrogen have the potential to be next generation energy carriers for a carbon-constrained world. Green hydrogen and other solar fuels could replace fossil fuels used for most transport; replacing heavy fuel oil used by container ships, the jet fuel used to fly planes, and the diesel and [...]

Making Solar Hydrogen with a Side of Carbon Nanotubes

As detailed in the paper co-authored by IHI Corporation researcher Satoshi Seo (Production of C2-olefins and Hydrogen from Methane Pyrolysis with Concentrated Solar Energy) presented at the SolarPACES Conference in South Korea; this novel two-step process produces hydrogen and carbon materials without producing carbon dioxide, and avoids several technological problems [...]

A Solar Process Like Gas Reforming Makes Green Hydrogen Cheaper

A preliminary study of the average cost of a novel process for producing solar hydrogen in several locations in Australia finds it could come close to the US DOE renewable hydrogen target of $3 per kilogram. The way that hydrogen is reformed from natural gas is a well-established, low-cost process. [...]
