Hydrogen Powerplant Harnesses Solar Power to Produce Hydrogen

Share

The new project of SolarLab Research and Design is a Hydrogen Powerplant that uses solar energy to generate hydrogen.

The concept was designed to take advantage of seawater, a fuel cell and Solar Tiles to generate hydrogen. The latter is afterwards pumped carefully to inflated hydrogen tanks mounted on the sea floor.

Due to the water-cooling effect, the plant's efficiency increases by 30 percent and the operating temperature significantly decreases.

The chances of explosion are limited to zero because hydrogen is gathered underwater, informs EcoFriend. The produced hydrogen is then dispensed in a cold, pressurized underwater environment via a hydrogen pipeline.
