Photoactivated Fuel Cells (PhotoFuelCells). An alternative source of renewable energy with environmental benefits

Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Patras, 26500 Patras, Greece

Topical Section: The solar cell

This work is a short review of Photoactivated Fuel Cells, that is, photoelectrochemical cells which consume an organic or inorganic fuel to produce renewable electricity or hydrogen. The work presents the basic features of photoactivated fuel cells, their modes of operation, the materials, which are frequently used for their construction and some ideas of cell design both for electricity and solar hydrogen production. Water splitting is treated as a special case of photoactivated fuel cell operation.
