A powerful new solar cell produces both hydrogen fuel and electrical power

“In a field that’s essentially water-bending meets renewable energy, researchers successfully harnessed photosynthesis to split water to produce hydrogen fuel. Splitting H2O at its molecular level is something scientists have been doing for over 200 years, and could hold the tantalizing key to an emission-free hydrogen economy — if only it could be scaled up. Fortunately we’ve made progress in bringing down the costs, and researchers have also gotten close to mastering the art of artificial photosynthesis, but low efficiency keeps the process from dreaming big, at least until now.”
