Abstract

The combination of a photovoltaic (PV) and an electrolytic cell into one single system, a monolithic PV-electrolytic cell, has been suggested as an efficient solar hydrogen generation system. In this study, we demonstrate an efficient prototype electrolysis system applied to a monolithic PV-electrolytic cell. Specifically, the relatively large unit cell (active area of 36 cm 2) used in the study made it possible to directly measure in volume the amount of hydrogen and oxygen generated. To enhance the activity of the electrodes we introduced channels, Co 3O 4 film, and Pt particles on stainless steel (SUS) substrates. The highest hydrogen production rate was obtained in the system in which Co 3O 4 electrocatalytic film on a SUS foil and Pt particles on a SUS plate with channels were used as an anode and a cathode, respectively.
