Journal Article: Thermodynamic Assessment Of Geothermal Energy Use In Hydrogen Production

Abstract
In this study, geothermal-based hydrogen production methods, and their technologies and application possibilities are discussed in detail. A high-temperature electrolysis (HTE) process coupled with and powered by a geothermal source is considered for a case study, and its thermodynamic analysis through energy and exergy is conducted for performance evaluation purposes. In this regard, overall energy and exergy efficiencies of the geothermal-based hydrogen production process for this HTE are found to be 87% and 86%, respectively.
