Cost Analysis of a Concentrator Photovoltaic Hydrogen Production System

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

The development of efficient, renewable methods of producing hydrogen are essential for the success of the hydrogen economy. Since the feedstock for electrolysis is water, there are no harmful pollutants emitted during the use of the fuel. Furthermore, it has become evident that concentrator photovoltaic (CPV) systems have a number of unique attributes that could shortcut the development process,and increase the efficiency of hydrogen production to a point where economics will then drive the commercial development to mass scale.
