HyperSolar Reaches Significant Milestone in Achieving Low Cost Solar Powered Hydrogen Production

Power EngineeringSANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 11, 2014) - HyperSolar, Inc. (OTCQBHYSR), the developer of a breakthrough technology to produce renewable hydrogen using sunlight and any source of water, today announced that its artificial photosynthesis technology is now capable of producing 1.2 volt open circuit voltage for use in direct solar hydrogen production. This achievement represents another 10% increase over the previous 1.1 volt reached late last year, a significant step towards truly renewable low cost hydrogen.

"We now see a path to production of hydrogen through immersion of low cost semiconductor materials in water," stated Tim Young. "Our approach uses only one type of inexpensive semiconducting material and reduces manufacturing complexity. Use of low cost materials with an industrial scaleable process and may even make it a viable approach for fabricating low-cost photovoltaic modules for other applications beyond water splitting."
