Scientists Find New Way to Utilize Solar Energy

Americans may be one step closer to driving zero-emission cars, as a new Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory report published this month sheds light on new methods for harnessing solar energy. Lab scientists have discovered a low-cost, zero-emission method of effectively utilizing the sun's energy to extract hydrogen from water, according to a paper published Jan. 20 in Science Magazine's website. This hydrogen could then be used for fuel cells. More>
