Special Issue Introduction

In a world increasingly concerned about sustainability and the environmental impact of energy conversion, hydrogen and fuel cell technologies have emerged as promising solutions. Hydrogen, the most abundant element in the universe, holds great potential as a clean and versatile energy carrier. Meanwhile, fuel cells represent innovative devices that can efficiently convert hydrogen into electricity and water with zero emissions.

The "Hydrogen and Fuel Cell" Special Issue aims to provide a comprehensive overview of current research and development in this transformative field. We anticipate that the insights and findings shared in these articles will inspire further innovation and contribute to the broader conversation on sustainable and clean energy solutions.

As we face critical challenges related to air quality, climate change, and the transition to a low-carbon future, hydrogen and fuel cell technologies possess certain features required for a greener, more sustainable energy landscape. We invite you to explore the articles in this Special Issue and join us in the journey towards a cleaner, more efficient, and sustainable energy future.

Table of Contents:

Hydrogen Production Technologies: This section presents research on various hydrogen production methods, including electrolysis, steam methane reforming, and solar-driven water splitting. Authors discuss the environmental impact, efficiency of these methods, and their potential for large-scale application.

Fuel Cell Types and Applications: Delving into multiple fuel cell types, such as proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells, solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs), and molten carbonate fuel cells (MCFC), this section explores their applications in transportation, stationary power generation, and beyond.

Electrolyzer Types and Applications: Covering diverse electrolyzer types, such as PEM, liquid alkaline, alkaline exchange membrane, and solid oxide, this section explores their applications.

Hydrogen Storage and Transportation: Effective storage and transportation methods are crucial to make hydrogen a practical energy carrier. Experts in this section cover the challenges and innovations in hydrogen storage, including compressed gas, liquid hydrogen, and advancements in transportation infrastructure.

Fuel Cell and Electrolyzer Performance and Durability: Fuel cells and electrolyzers with sufficient performance and durability exist today for specific markets; however, durability improvements are required in particular cases (e.g., long-haul trucking) and helpful in others to ensure competitiveness in the energy market. Articles within this section focus on examining the performance characteristics, durability, and reliability research for fuel cells and electrolyzers, along with materials and design improvements.

Hydrogen as an Energy Solution: Expanding beyond fuel cells, the role of hydrogen in the broader energy landscape is explored. This section considers integration into renewable and other zero-emissions energy systems, its potential for energy storage, and applications in decarbonizing throughout a range of sectors.
