Project: Green hydrogen from anion exchange membrane water electrolysis

The limitation of renewable energy is its intermittency and unpredictability. As the proportion of renewable energy in the grid increases, large-scale energy storage measures need to be developed. Because of its zero-carbon emission energy, hydrogen energy is considered the cleanest energy.Anion exchange membrane water electrolyzers (AEMWEs) are considered one of the most promising sustainable hydrogen production technologies because of their ability to split water using platinum group metal-free catalysts, less expensive anode flow fields, and bipolar plates.

This project is to develop new, highly efficient electrocatalysts by fabricating porous structures or constructing a nanomorphology to increase the number of active sites and intrinsic activity. This work may lead to the development of a system of AEM electrolyzer and drive the future use of hydrogen as an energy storage vector on a large scale (GW) especially in developing countries.
