Gleanings from the web and the world, condensed for convenience, illustrated for enlightenment, arranged for impact...

While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    SOLAR-POWERED HYDROGEN FUEL

    We're One Step Closer to Creating Hydrogen Gas from Solar Energy; Solar panels of the future could produce clean-burning hydrogen gas in a one-step process.

    William Herkewitz, February 4, 2016 (Popular Mechanics)

    “…[O]ne the biggest questions facing the solar power industry…[is how to] get a solar panel to supply a reliable, steady supply of electricity…[Scientists] and engineers are increasingly…using solar power to create clean-burning hydrogen gas…[which] can be stored indefinitely, and has the highest energy density of any gas or liquid fuel…[A team of researchers at the University of California, Berkeley] has taken a large leap toward developing efficient solar fuel cells that transform normal water into hydrogen gas…[using a new, metal-based material to make] solar fuel cells. These fuel cells—in a one-step process—would split apart an incoming flow of liquid water into steady streams of oxygen and hydrogen gas, with nothing more than a gentle influx of sunlight…[In solar fuel cells, the] anode side rips oxygen from water in a process called solar electrolysis, and the cathode side produces the flow of hydrogen gas…Even with the new material, hydrogen-producing solar fuel cells are still too wasteful and far from commercially viable…[but provide a] conceptual framework for developing even better anode materials…” click here for more
