Solar cells

Hydrogen Solar's Tandem Cell uses sunlight to split water into hydrogen and oxygen.

The cells have nanocrystalline metal particles on their surface, giving them a vast surface area with which to collect the Sun's energy.

Currently, it converts just over 8% of the Sun's energy into pure hydrogen.

Hydrogen is potentially a clean source of fuel.
