Making hydrogen from the sun
SunCatalytix is a start-up spun out of MIT to build an inexpensive device called an electrolyzer for getting hydrogen fuel from water by running an electric current through it. It received funding from ARPA-E to build a prototype (seen here) of a material that will make hydrogen directly from a solar cell. The hydrogen would then be stored and used as a fuel to generate electricity.
