Hydrogen from Solar

At the University of Colorado Boulder, a team has developed a new technology that uses sunlight to convert water into hydrogen. The process involves the use of solar-thermal arrays that utilize mirrors that produce heat in excess of 2,500° F. This heat is then brought to a reactor that contains metal oxides. Their method is said to be one of the most efficient and sustainable ways of producing hydrogen to date!
