World’s First Solar Fuels Reactor for Night Passes Test

International solar thermal energy researchers have successfully tested CONTISOL, a solar reactor that runs on air, able to make any solar fuel like hydrogen and to run day or night – because it uses concentrated solar power (CSP) which can include thermal energy storage. The promise of solar fuels is that we could have zero […]

New Breakthrough Boosts Solar Fuel Efficiency

Scientists of University of Twente have made significant efficiency improvements to the technology used to generate solar fuels. This involves the direct conversion of energy from sunlight into a usable fuel (in this case, hydrogen). Using only earthabundant materials, they developed the most efficient conversion method to date. The trick was to decouple the site […]
