Solar hydrogen breakthrough at Scottish university

0

A team of Scottish-based scientists are developing a new system to produce hydrogen (H2) from solar energy.

The high cost and low efficiency of producing H2 from sunlight is being tackled by scientists at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh.

Dr Jin Xuan (below), Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering, and the Associate Director of Research Centre for Carbon Solutions at Heriot-Watt University, and colleagues from Yale, the City University of Hong Kong and the East China University of Science and Technology are developing a new system to produce H2 from solar energy using a technique known as photoelectrochemical (PEC) water splitting. The technique uses solar energy to split the H2 and oxygen (O2) in water and collect the H2 as a renewable energy source.
