Prototype of a photoelektrochemical cell for hydrogen production.

The solar hydrogen production by photo-induced water splitting has a high potential to protect existing resources and to increase the share of renewable energies. The conversion of renewable energy into chemical energy in the form of hydrogen provides an efficient storage technology that can compensate fluctuations in energy production and energy consumption.

The department Sustainable Energy Technology is therefore pursuing the work with the following objectives:
