Benchmarking Advanced Water Splitting Technologies: Best Practices in Materials Characterization

Project: Research project

Description

Renewable sources of hydrogen are a key need across multiple sectors as part of sustainable manufacturing and transportation. Because of this reality, and the ability of hydrogen to store energy on seasonal time scales, hydrogen generation is also an attractive option for capture and storage of excess renewable energy for grid management. However, there is a need for consistency in testing and analysis protocols and methodologies within as well as across individual technologies, to accurately assess absolute and relative potential and progress. To succeed in this task, there is a need for subject matter experts (SMEs) with specific expertise in each technology area, from materials to devices to systems, as well as strong networks within the community. The proposed team is uniquely qualified to address this challenge, and has extremely strong connections within the EMN.
