Study suggests solar energy potential solution for green hydrogen production

New research led by the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland, suggests that solar energy can be accessed and converted into hydrogen.

The study, funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, has found that using a photocatalyst under simulated sunlight facilitates the decomposition of water, when loaded with an iridium catalyst, which in turn generates hydrogen.

Previous systems during the research had relied on electrons to drive the reactions, however, the successful process has allowed it to become ‘energy negative’.
