Hydrogen and fuel cell systems

Researchers at IESVic are working to address most steps in a hydrogen energy system, including generation, storage, distribution, economics, and fuel cell electricity generation.

Because the transportation sector poses particularly strong challenges to eliminating carbon emissions, fuel cell stack and system development is a key initiative at IESVic. The institute receives support from a number of government and industrial partners for its research into stack modeling and design for vehicle scale PEM systems.

More recently, research on regenerative hydrogen systems driven by renewable energy sources have been investigated with a focus on the dynamic response and efficiency.

Finally, IESVic researchers are also pursuing the development of novel methods for storing hydrogen with a focus on new liquefaction processes.
