EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Abstract: Interest in developing hydrogen production technologies stems from the need to develop another source of energy that is sustainable and environmentally friendly. This interest results also from the growth in energy needs for hydrogen as a feedstock. Water electrolysis is the sustainable and clean hydrogen production process that has reached the industrial maturity. In the present work, a techno-economic assessment of hydrogen production using an electrolyser- concentrating photovoltaic (CPV) system in Algeria is carried out. Different technologies of solar concentration and of photovoltaic modules are considered. The dependence of hydrogen production potential and of hydrogen production cost on these technologies is investigated. By comparison to common PV-electrolysis method, the CPV-electrolysis technique offers a much higher production rate at much more competitive cost.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Abstract: Photocatalytic reforming of lignocellulosic biomass is an emerging approach to produce renewable H2 . This process combines photo‐oxidation of aqueous biomass with photocatalytic hydrogen evolution at ambient temperature and pressure. Biomass conversion is less energy demanding than water splitting and generates high‐purity H2 without O2 production. Direct photoreforming of raw, unprocessed biomass has the potential to provide affordable and clean energy from locally sourced materials and waste. Abstract : Photocatalytic reforming of lignocellulosic biomass is a promising approach to produce renewable H2 at ambient temperature and pressure. Direct photoreforming of raw, unprocessed biomass is emerging as a potential technology to provide affordable, clean energy from abundant waste.

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

There are three important problems facing the world: deple tion of fossil fUels, demand for more energy, and the pollution of our environment. The world contains limited amounts of fossil fuels. They are being depleted, at an ever-growing rate. Peoples of the world are demanding more and more energy. This is due to the desires of peoples to improve their standard of living--and the standard of living is directly proportional to the energy con sumed. In addition, the world is demanding a cleaner environment to live in. Many of us, scientists and engineers, believe that replacing fossil fuels with the inexhaustible and clean synthetic fuel, hydrogen (produced from non-fossil primary sources of energy) will answer the above problems. Hydrogen, as the fUel of the post-fossil-fUel era, was pre dicted more than a hundred years ago by that great forecaster of the future, Jules Verne, in his novel The Mysterious Island: Water decomposed into its primitive elements, and decom posed doubtless by electricity, which will then have become a powerful and manageable force. • • . Yes, my friends, I believe that water will one day be employed as fuel, that hydrogen and oxygen, which constitute it, used singly or together, will furnish an inexhaustible source of heat and light of an intensity, of which coal is not capable •. •. I believe, then, that when the deposits of coal are exhausted, we shall heat and warm ourselves with water. Water will be the coal of the future.

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

It is just a matter of time when fossil fuels will become unavailable or uneconomical to retrieve. On top of that, their environmental impact is already too severe. Renewable energy sources can be considered as the most important substitute to fossil energy, since they are inexhaustible and have a very low, if none, impact on the environment. Still, their unevenness and unpredictability are drawbacks that must be dealt with in order to guarantee a reliable and steady energy supply to the final user. Hydrogen can be the answer to these problems. This book presents the readers with the modeling, functioning and implementation of solar hydrogen energy systems, which efficiently combine different technologies to convert, store and use renewable energy. Sources like solar photovoltaic or wind, technologies like electrolysis, fuel cells, traditional and advanced hydrogen storage are discussed and evaluated together with system management and output performance. Examples are also given to show how these systems are capable of providing energy independence from fossil fuels in real life settings.
