The University of Colorado at Boulder has designed a hydrogen plant that uses an array of mirrors to focus sunlight onto a huge tower. The tower heats up to 1,350 °C – enough to liberate hydrogen from steam.
‘We have designed something here that is very different from other methods and frankly something that nobody thought was possible before,’ said lead scientist Professor Alan Weimer, from the University of Colorado at Boulder
‘Splitting water with sunlight is the Holy Grail of a sustainable hydrogen economy.
Hydrogen could be used as a fuel for road transport, distributed heat and power generation, and for energy storage.
Phi Beta Iota: Water energy is not new, including closed fuel systems running on water, what is new is the combination of universities attacking the problem at a scale and in an unsensorable manner, and public demand for a migration away from legacy energy that is inherently corrupt, and toward natural energy that benefits all instead of a few. The intersection of solar power and water treatment (including desalination) is the tipping point for the next level of civilization.
