HyperSolar, Inc., the developer of a breakthrough technology to produce renewable hydrogen using sunlight and water, today announced that it is working with Suzhou GH New Energy Co. Ltd., a division of GCL Poly, to make the final modifications to the solar cells required to manufacture the Gen 1 hydrogen production panels to be used in demonstration pilot plants.
“While we have experienced some delays in processing due to Covad 19, the work in China is now ongoing,” said Tim Young, CEO of HyperSolar. “We have evaluated many suppliers globally and have found that our connection to Suzhou GH has been our best and most reliable option. “Our relationship with them has also connected us to other high-quality and economical suppliers for the processing of the cells and building modules.”
In 2019, China issued Patent No. ZL201580026002.0 allowing protection for HyperSolar’s intellectual property in China related to using multi-junction solar cells to produce hydrogen. To further support the economics of the new panel, there is currently no tariff on the solar cells the company buys from China.
Mr. Young concluded, “Suzhou GH is the ideal partner to help us finalize our Gen 1 development and begin the process of building demonstration plants.”
