Hydrogen fuel tech gets boost from low-cost, efficient catalyst

Scientists have engineered a cheap, abundant alternative to the expensive platinum catalyst and coupled it with a light-absorbing electrode to make hydrogen fuel from sunlight and water. The discovery, published last week in Nature Materials, is an important development in the worldwide effort to mimic the way plants make fuel from sunlight, a key step in creating a green energy economy.

"This is the most difficult half of the problem, and we are attacking this in the same way as we attacked the hydrogen side," Dahl said.
"A sustainable energy choice that no one can afford is not sustainable at all," he said. "I hope this approach will enable us to choose a truly sustainable fuel."
