Energy and Environment
Future planet earth
The path leads to PSE energy research which makes an important contribution with its projects to curbing the greenhouse effect.
In the actual PSI reflector – with a diameter of 8.5m – the temperatures climb to more than 2000 degrees. By means of chemical reactions, solar energy can be stored in fuels. In a second step, hydrogen can be produced from this.
Mobility in the future
When integrated into cars, fuel cells could make an important contribution in future to reducing CO2-emissions. PSI is working on various projects in this area. Important subjects are, for instance, cost reduction and life cycle optimisation.
