HyperSolar Envisions Solar Powered Hydrogen “Farms”

HyperSolar Envisions Solar Powered Hydrogen “Farms”

Last year the solar company HyperSolar, Inc. filed a patent application for a solar powered system that creates renewable methane gas from water, which it has been testing out at California’s Salton Sea . Just last week, the company announced that it has completed a proof-of-concept prototype for a solar-powered hydrogen generator , so this looks like a good time to check in and see what they’re up to. Everything you need to know about hydrogen Hydrogen can be produced from plain water through a reaction touched off by electricity. However, it takes a significant amount of energy to split hydrogen atoms from water molecules. If the energy in question is a fossil fuel then hydrogen is a wash in terms of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. An emerging solution is to develop hydrogen production systems that are integrated with solar power, essentially mimicking the natural pro...
