Two engineers from Extremadura have created a hydrogen generator that, through the decomposition of water, will allow low costs to store hydrogen to subsequently create electricity, increasing the clean energy available in homes.
Extremadura engineers Antonio Fioravanti and Jaime Casanova have built H2VIVO, a prototype that extracts hydrogen from water to convert it later into electricity. The prototype, with great efficiency and significantly lower costs than the other hydrogen generators, provides an advantage of energy and lower costs in homes.
The hydrogen generator, created by extrememos with the collaboration of two professors from the Polytechnic University of Madrid, uses the energy of solar panels to decompose water into hydrogen and oxygen. The purpose is to store hydrogen to create «a clean, safe and inexhaustible energy, through its transformation to combustion gas or electricity», according to the researchers told Efe, and release oxygen to counteract greenhouse gases.
