Hydrogen has received a great deal of attention as a potential clean, alternative energy source. Unfortunately current methods of producing hydrogen consume more fossil fuels per unit energy utilized than would direct use of those same fuels. Photocatalytically produced hydrogen, is here examined as a potential clean and renewable alternative energy source. Its viability as a fuel is examined in terms of payback-time and energy yield estimates derived from a review of the life-cycle literature for comparable photovoltaics.
