The expected depletion of fossil fuel reserves and its severe environmental impact have brought about the need for sustainable and clean energy resources. Solar hydrogen generation via photoelectrochemical (PEC) water splitting techniques, which combine sunlight, water, and semiconductor materials, are promising alternatives to conventional fossil fuels. Solar-hydrogen fuel produced using PEC methods are renewable, sustainable and environmentally friendly.
