Solar-To-Hydrogen Technology Sold for $400 Million Euro
August 17, 2007 12:14 PM - Paul Schaefer, ENN

The maker of a solar powered 'water cracker' - a technology that releases hydrogen from a water molecule, today pre-sold the technology to a large European energy consortium in Spain. The CHP Solar Water Cracker is a system which concentrates sunlight, increasing the heat of a furnace to the point where it "cracks" a molecule of water into hydrogen and oxygen. The hydrogen can be sold or run through a fuel cell to generate energy.
