Making PEMWEs the top choice for hydrogen production
Water electrolysis is one of the greenest technologies for producing hydrogen. Based on proton conduction of polymeric electrolyte membrane (PEM) technology, the PEM water electrolyser (PEMWE) offers an interesting solution for renewable energy storage. For instance, hydrogen produced offers large storage and can be efficiently reconverted to electricity via fuel cells. The two major drawbacks are high costs and low long-term durability of cell components. To solve this, the EU-funded HYDROGEN project will develop membrane-electrode assemblies (MEAs) where membranes are reinforced with extensive networks of active polymer fibres prepared by electrospinning. The project’s aim is for PEMWE to become a competitive solution for hydrogen production.
