Abstract

Real-life implementations of solar hydrogen energy systems, both for stationary and non-stationary applications, are becoming ever more common with new technology advances. This chapter examines some of the most interesting actual installations, in order to highlight the peculiarities and the benefits of these systems and to bring to light the shortcomings to deal with, so that the readers can probe into the practical side of these solar hydrogen solutions.
