Advanced materials for hydrogen production in polymer electrolyte membrane water electrolyzers

Line of research
Hydrogen is an excellent solution to store energy from renewable and intermittent power sources. Polymer electrolyte membrane water electrolyzers (PEMWEs) are sustainable means for hydrogen production. However many challenges are still unexplored. Our goal is to develop cost-effective components for PEMWEs with enhanced activity and stability. Electrocatalysts with reduced noble-metal loadings are studied. The activity is focused on the oxygen evolution reaction, for which carbonaceous and oxide supports/co-catalysts, enabling high dispersion and stabilization of the metal phase, are proposed.
