This groundbreaking new facility in Germany is the future of alternative energy.

Researchers have successfully tested CONTISOL,: a solar reactor that is able to run on air and make solar fuel during the day and night.

Solar fuels, such as hydrogen, are fuels that are created without the climate-damaging carbon emissions that it takes to make hydrogen from natural gas today. This means that perfecting solar reactors is the key to a 100% clean energy future.

Instead of burning a fossil fuel for the heat needed to drive the thermal chemistry process of things like splitting H2 (hydrogen) from H2O, scientists have been testing various kinds of reactors that are heated by the thermal form of solar using mirrors to concentrate solar flux on a receiver.
