Photoelectrochemical (PEC) cells combined in tandem with PV cells offer a solution to this problem by using solar radiation (light) to electrolyze water and generate hydrogen which can then be converted to electricity using fuel cells or be used to synthesize and store hydrocarbon fuels by hydrogenation of CO2 .
An electrolyzer-based system would require only water for feedstock, and electricity, possibly from solar or wind, to electrolyze, compress, and refrigerate the fuel.
The solution is perfect for remote areas which are not connected to the power grid, and can be used to electrolyze water for many uses through power converted by PV cells," said Takatsuka.
The standard process of making hydrogen from water through electrolysis is 50 percent efficient," he says, "but if you electrolyze water that is already at high temperature and high pressure, that greatly improves efficiency.
