Making Hydrogen Using Sunlight to Split Water. In the global battle to rid ourselves of fossil fuels, hydrogen often is presented as a way forward. As a energy carrier, hydrogen is not so attractive as it must be highly compressed and cooled to have sufficient energy per volume and it is not so easy to […]

Science Questions and Answers: How Does Hydroelectricity Work?  Flowing water carries tremendous amounts of power. A Canadian waterfall in Ontario (created by the Ottawa River) that moves 170,000 cubic meters of water per minute at a speed of almost 60 kilometers per hour can fill a thousand Olympic swimming pools every day.
