The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and Electric Hydrogen have inked a three-year $2.6m collaboration agreement to focus on the development of high-performance electrolyser components to help scale hydrogen production.
Part of an effort to support the global hydrogen economy, the duo said they hope to diagnose sources of degradation in commercial electrolysis cells and will validate advanced designs that use higher stack currents.
To do this, researchers will focus on proton-exchange membrane electrolysis and will study the methods of managing heat and degradation with high current densities. Members of the team aim to optimise multiple engineered layers, shrinking the system size and costs.
