Fuel Cell Systems - AAU Energy research group

Vision and Goal of THE RESEARCH GROUP - Fuel Cell Systems

The mission of the fuel cell systems research group is to support the development of sustainable energy production through leading edge research at international level in the field of hydrogen and fuel cells. This is achieved through a range fundamental research, through modeling and experimental characterization of fuel cell and electrolysis cell components, and research on system integration and demonstration, control, diagnostics, and online state-of health monitoring. It is also our mission to develop new and innovative smart energy system platforms based on fuel cells for different applications, such as backup/telecom application, microchip, automotive, including buses and heavy duty tracks, maritime application and the emerging drone technologies.

 

HOW THE RESEARCH GROUP - fuel cell systems IS LINKED TO AAU ENERGY MISSIONS

With hydrogen being the ultimate sector coupler, the fuel cell systems research group is mainly linked to the AAU Energy missions of Electrification and Integration, Energy efficiency and Sustainable Fuels. Hydrogen produced from renewable electricity can be used either directly in fuel cells to electrify different sectors of economy that are otherwise difficult to electrify. Alternatively, the produces hydrogen can be transformed via PtX processes into other fuels, such as methanol and ammonia, which can also be used in fuel cells for various applications.
