Solar to Fuel. Hydrogen production from solar energy

The people, the PV and also the pipes that can make hydrogen work
At Australia's University of Newcastle hydrogen production starts with water extracted from the atmosphere and electrolysis powered by totally free energy from the sun; sucking CO2 from the air is the next action to filling Angus Taylor's cherished gas facilities with green methane that can bring spuds to the boil and power the economy while assisting to flatten the nation's discharges curve.

Hydrogen economy requires public laws
According to the 2020 Global Gas Report by Snam, the International Gas Union and also BloombergNEF, public policies are required to sustain clean hydrogen reach commercial clusters and to facilitate large-scale use. The authors of the report recognized the benefits of using wind and solar to directly power electrolysis, but they do not dispose of the opportunity of using gas power with carbon capture storage space. The professionals of the three celebrations also identified barriers to get rid of for future development.
