SunHydrogen and the University of Michigan have joined forces to test highly efficient catalysts for oxygen and hydrogen evolution, which will cut the costs of materials whilst maintaining high solar-to-hydrogen conversion efficiency.
The US-based renewable hydrogen company today (Oct 11) announced the effort as part of a newly inked 12-month sponsored research agreement with the University of Michigan. Under the agreement, the university will also assess SunHydrogen’s overall hydrogen production process.
Dr. Nirala Singh, Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Michigan will lead the work, alongside a team formed of two additional postdoctoral scientists.
Commenting on the new partnership, Tim Young, CEO of SunHydrogen, said, “Dr. Singh has an exceptional track record in optimising electrochemical processes to effectively utilise renewable electricity. He was among the inventors of our original patented technology, and we are happy to have him back on the team.”
SunHydrogen’s work with the University of Michigan will be carried out alongside its existing development partnerships with the University of Iowa, SCHMID Group and InRedox.
US DOE, General Motors, Microsoft and Plug Power
What does the US Department of Energy (DOE), General Motors, Microsoft and Plug Power have in common? They’re all speaking at H2 View’s North American Virtual Hydrogen Event in October. Will you be joining us on October 19?
North America is in a prime position to lead efforts in decarbonisation, but it still has great distances to travel. The region has been giving chase in a race to green hydrogen dominated by Europe and Asia-Pacific. If policymakers and industry can work together and take the right steps to realise a hydrogen vision, the region is perfectly placed to expand its global energy leadership at scale and speed.
What lessons can be learned from Europe’s policymakers? What are the challenges to be overcome? What are the strengths and opportunities? How can North America go from giving chase to taking a lead in hydrogen? These are all questions our virtual event will address across H2 View’s four pillars of Mobility, Power, Policy and Technology.
