DOE announces $40m funding to advance H2@Scale

UToldeo was awarded $750,000 to improve water-splitting, the process of breaking apart the water molecule, separating hydrogen from oxygen. The hydrogen, which produces only water when consumed in a fuel cell, can then be used as a clean fuel.

The photovoltaics team, led by Dr. Yanfa Yan, UToledo Professor of Physics, and Dr. Zhaoning Song, Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, will develop low-cost photoelectrodes for more efficient photoelectrochemical water splitting using material from their perovskite solar cells.
