Researchers from Washington State University (WSU) have developed a “breakthrough” in splitting water into its parts to help make renewable energy.
Using solar and wind power when it is available for water splitting, a process that uses electricity to split water into hydrogen and oxygen, offers a way to store energy in the form of hydrogen fuel.
“The current water electrolysis system uses a very expensive catalyst,” said Yu Seung Kim, Research Scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
“In our system, we use a nickel-iron based catalyst, which is much cheaper, but the performance is comparable.”
