New Efficiency Mark In Hydrogen Production

A team of scientists at Idaho National Labratory reached a milestone in hydrogen production through high temperature electrolysis (HTE) and produced hydrogen at a rate of 5.6 cubic meters per hour.

HTE is a system of producing hydrogen using a technology that was originally developed for solid oxide fuel cells and is a vast improvement of efficiency over using a conventional electric current through water.  Combining this with a clean power source, HTE could produce hydrogen at 45-55% efficiency.  Perhaps hydrogen powered cars are not far off in the distant future.
