Technology demonstration of large scale photo-electrochemical system for solar hydrogen production - PECSYS

PECSYS is a research and innovation project aimed at demonstrating a system for the solar driven electrochemical hydrogen generation.  The final demonstrator shall consist of several planar modules with an active area >10 m² and is projected to produce more than 10 Kg of hydrogen over a six month period.

The consortium shall test various established PV materials (thin film silicon, crystalline silicon heterojunction and copper indium gallium di-selenide,CIGS) and integrate them with established electrolysers technologies to develop innovative device concepts for integrated photo-electrochemical devices.

The focus shall be on energy efficiency enhancement, scaling up and optimizing the long-term stability of these devices that will go far beyond the current state of the art in terms of performance and cost.
