Abstract
The experimental research on hydrogen production by water electrochemical splitting is presented in the article. In the study low temperature electrolytic unit with 26th% KOH liquid solution and small-scale photovoltaic module (PV-module) were used to convert solar energy into molecular hydrogen. Speeds and volumes of average monthly hydrogen production are defined for Kyiv insolation using experimental facilities. The method applied can be proposed to estimate hydrogen amount generated when combining the conventional electrolysis process and photovoltaic module for compensating the long term fluctuations of solar photovoltaics.
