Daniel Esposito has been studying water electrolysis, the splitting of water into oxygen (O2) and hydrogen (H2) fuel, as a way to convert electricity from solar PV (photovoltaics) into storable hydrogen fuel.
Scientists from the University of Surrey have produced non-metal electro-catalysts for fuel cells that could pave the way for production of low-cost, environmentally friendly energy generation.
The team created an entirely textile-based biobattery that can produce maximum power similar to that produced by his previous paper-based microbial fuel cells.
Tri-Gen is a key step forward in Toyota’s work to develop a hydrogen society.
The device could make hydrogen cars affordable for many more consumers
The lightest chemical element, hydrogen is an efficient energy store and could potentially replace gasoline in vehicles.
