Scientists at the University of Michigan, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory have described the chemical mechanisms behind curiously resilient photocathodes made from silicon and gallium nitride.
Plenary presentations and breakout session summaries from the 3rd Annual Advanced Water Splitting (AWS) Technology Pathways Benchmarking and Protocols Workshop are now publicly available on the HydroGEN Data Hub.
The 3rd Annual Advanced Water Splitting Technology Pathways Benchmarking and Protocols Workshop will be held virtually on March 1–3 and March 8, 2021. The workshop will consist of three half-day sessions followed by a closeout meeting.
This video overview of HydroGEN was featured at the Materials Research Society 2019 Fall Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts.
The 2nd Annual Advanced Water Splitting Technology Pathways Benchmarking and Protocols Workshop will be held October 29–30, 2019, in Scottsdale, Arizona. Pre-registration and other details will be provided by early August.
The U.S. Department of Energy announced approximately $31 million in funding to advance the H2@ Scale concept through R&D in the areas of hydrogen storage and infrastructure, hydrogen production and utilization, and the development of new integrated production, storage, and fueling systems.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has established five new “supernodes” within the HydroGEN consortium through which multiple lab capability nodes and experts will work synergistically to address a specific water splitting materials problem or research need.
The HydroGEN consortium has entered into new collaborations with four National Science Foundation (NSF) projects linking academic research in energy materials with the Department of Energy EERE Energy Materials Network, leveraging the world class capability nodes of the national-labs.
On Thursday, February 7, from noon to 1 p.m. Eastern Time, DOE's Fuel Cell Technologies Office will present a live webinar about the HydroGEN Advanced Water Splitting Materials consortium. Researchers from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory will discuss the consortium's extensive materials research capabilities to address R&D challenges in efficiency, durability, and cost.
HydroGEN experts Dong Ding and Ting He from Idaho National Laboratory (INL), with other INL researchers and collaborators from Georgia Institute of Technology and the University of South Carolina, have demonstrated efficient hydrogen production via steam electrolysis below 600°C using proton-conducting electrolytes.
