A tree may have the answers to renewable energy

Through an energy conversion process that mimics that of a tree, a University of Wisconsin-Madison materials scientist is making strides in renewable energy technologies for producing hydrogen.

Improving the cost and efficiency of renewable energy storage

A major challenge in renewable energy is storage. A common approach is a reaction that splits water into oxygen and hydrogen, and uses the hydrogen as a fuel to store energy. The efficiency of 'water splitting' depends heavily ...

Building better catalysts for splitting water

(Phys.org) —The dream of a hydrogen economy—a world run on H2 gas, free from the pollution and politics of fossil fuels—may depend on developing an energy-efficient strategy for splitting water into oxygen and hydrogen. ...

An improved, cost-effective catalyst for water-splitting devices

By replacing platinum with molybdenum in photoelectrochemical cells, scientists from two EPFL labs have developed a cheaper and scalable technique that can greatly improve hydrogen production through water splitting as a ...

Researchers find rust can power up artificial photosynthesis

Chemists at Boston College have achieved a series of breakthroughs in their efforts to develop an economical means of harnessing artificial photosynthesis by narrowing the voltage gap between the two crucial processes of ...
