Abstract

This study investigates hydrogen production via a directly coupled solar‐PEM electrolysis system using aqueous methanol instead of water. The effect of load matching and methanol concentration on hydrogen production rates, electrolysis efficiency, and solar‐hydrogen efficiency was investigated. The electrolysis efficiencies were subsequently used in simulation studies to estimate production costs in scaled up systems. The results show that the added hydrogen production associated with the methanol solutions leads to favourable hydrogen production costs at smaller scales.
