Japan team evaluates battery-assisted low-cost hydrogen production from solar energy
Green Car Congress
FEBRUARY 1, 2019
The results from this study suggested a cost of hydrogen as low as ¥17 to ¥27/Nm 3 (US$0.16 - $0.25) using a combination of technologies and the achievement of ambitious individual cost targets for batteries, PV, and electrolyzers. For comparison, the US DOE’s 2020 target for the levelized cost of hydrogen (production only) is $2.30/kg.
