Membrane cell stack integrated in a prototype of a PEM electrolyser developed at Fraunhofer ISE.

  • Develop laboratory cells for scientific investigations, including reference electrodes on the anode and cathode sides to separately monitor the various overpotentials.
  • Develop stack designs for PEM pressure electrolysis up to 50 bar
  • Develop and characterize complete PEM electrolysis systems up to ca. 10kW, including customized power electronics and application-specific operation
  • Develop customer-specific test rigs for PEM water electrolysis
  • Monitor electrolyzers in field tests
