PEM Water Electrolysisexplores technology gaps in the development of commercially viable PEM electrolysis systems for energy applications. This volume from the popularHydrogen Energy and Fuel Cell Primersseries brings together information from different sources, making it a useful reference for industry professionals, researchers and graduate students alike. It examines the fundamentals of PEM electrolysis and select research topics of interest in related academic and industry communities, such as gas crossover and AST protocols, laying the foundation for the exploration of industrial trends for PEM electrolysis, including power-to-gas application and the application of PEM electrolysis associated with energy storage.

Topics include the durability aspects of PEM electrolysis systems and components, accelerated stress test protocols, manufacturing aspects of large-scale electrolyzers and components, gas crossover problems in PEM electrolyzer safety, and the challenges associated with high-current density operation of PEM electrolyzers. A technology development matrix for systems and components requirements is also covered, as well as unconventional PEM water electrolysis systems, such as ozone generators.

  • Presents the fundamentals and most current knowledge in proton exchange membrane water electrolyzers
  • Explores the technology gaps and challenges for commercial deployment of PEM water electrolysis technologies
  • Includes unconventional systems, such as ozone generators
  • Brings together information from many different sources under one single title, making it a useful reference for industry professionals, researchers and graduate students alike
