Generate Hydrogen With A Solar Concentrator = Parabolic Mirror + Other Hydrogen Articles

This needs an expensive catalyser. But the solar energy is free and it generates about a kilogram of hydrogen a day, which can power a car for 150 km. We need green hydrogen to power the whole world and leave the fossil fuels in the ground. Now! https://youtu.be/uj-xFUnN96k ************************** The European Commission plans on having

2020-10-09 Gencell A5 System Powered By Ammonia

The Gencell A5 can power a cell site for a year 27/7/365 from a 12 ton tank of anhydrous ammonia. The tank is not pressurized and is at room temperature. The system converts ammonia to hydrogen and nitrogen and the hydrogen powers the fuel cells. https://www.gencellenergy.com/markets-applications/off-grid-power/

2020-10-07 The Solenco PowerBox™ System

This self-contained system uses solar PV panels as the only power input. It generates and stores green hydrogen, then uses it later for both electricity and heat. The fuel cell’s byproduct is water. One important “problem” that I see is that this system makes the customer completely independent of the electricity _and_ gas utilities. There
