PEM Water Electrolysis explores the technology gaps in the development of commercially viable PEM electrolysis systems for energy applications. This volume-from the popular Hydrogen Energy and Fuel Cell Primers series-brings together information from many different sources under one single title, making it a useful reference for industry professionals, researchers, and graduate students alike. This primer examines the fundamentals of PEM electrolysis and select research topics of interest in related academic and industry communities, such as gas cross-over and AST protocols. This lays the foundation for the exploration of current industrial trends for PEM electrolysis, such as power-to-gas application, with strong focus on current trends in the application of PEM electrolysis associated with energy storage. These include 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 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
