For a larger production, in addition to the fields, companies may use abandoned industrial areas, thus recycling portions of land that would otherwise remain abandoned.
There is talk of 9 thousand square kilometers of surface that would generate 15 gigawatts of extra electricity as part of Solar Power Installation. After a short break, it seems that our country wants to go back to being the first in solar energy production.
Hydrogen solar panels are not a novelty of the last hour, but few know the real potential. We are talking about an evolution of the classic photovoltaic system, in which there is no need to reduce energy production during the day, but also during the night.
In fact, traditional panels produce energy starting from solar radiation, present only during daylight hours. However, this limit prevents the continuous use of its electrical devices powered by solar energy, which are no longer able to function during the hours of darkness (night or adverse weather conditions).
In this case, we switch back to fossil fuel (oil or methane), which is not very ecological. This is why the new hydrogen solar panels could be an extremely efficient solution.
Speaking of hydrogen solar panels we must make a necessary clarification. However, it is an energy generation system based on solar radiation, which remains the primary supply of these Solar Power Installation panels.
During the night the accumulated energy converts to hydrogen gas, which recharging the solar cells allows its operation even at night (at lower intensity, but still functioning).
This dual functionality is made possible by the nanocrystals of which the tubular panels are made, made of zinc, cadmium sulfide, magnesium and platinum, which acts as a catalyst.
These elements constitute the active organic molecules with which the panel is made, which are used to produce hydrogen gas through a photocatalysis process.
The catalysis process is activated by zinc, which thanks to the action of light starts the oxidation activity, necessary for the functioning of these innovative cells.
The result is a highly efficient and innovative panel, perfect to represent the natural evolution of the traditional solar panel system.
Why are hydrogen solar panels so convenient? Hydrogen solar panels have many advantages in many ways. First of all we can talk about their greater efficiency, with an energy efficiency of + 50% compared to a traditional solar panel. This is given by their night-time operation, made possible by hydrogen cells.
Secondly they are made with a much longer life expectancy, up to 40 years of uninterrupted activity. Exposure to sunlight is mitigated by their honeycomb structure, which combined with state-of-the-art materials would guarantee twice the life of classic solar panels.
