The Bumpy Road to More Efficient Energy Sources
There are lots of reasons why hydrogen is a perfect fuel. More important—and this is where UO materials chemist Shannon Boettcher comes in—there are some major reasons why it’s not. Confronting the obstacles that stand in the way of more efficient energy is what Boettcher and his research team do, and finding a better way of making hydrogen is just one of the group’s more monumental hurdles.
