Abstract

Water electrolysis at high temperature with all solid cells has been considered evaluating the energetic efficiency of the overall process leading the heat, via electricity, to the chemical energy stored as hydrogen. To this purpose, a standard energy, the Electro ThermoNeutral Heat Demand (ETNHD) has been defined and proposed as standard, ideal reference. Some parameters affecting the efficiency have been discussed, and a general survey of the present activities on this very advanced research objective has been provided. The possible economic advantages which could be reached by further development in this very promising field of research were put into evidence.
