DOE Webinar: Hydrogen Production by PEM Electrolysis - Spotlight on Giner and Proton
May 19, 2011
The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) is offering a webinar on Monday, May 23, 2011, from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. Eastern titled "Hydrogen Production by PEM Electrolysis - Spotlight on Giner and Proton." Register now to attend this free webinar.
Available commercially, Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) electrolysis is a hydrogen-production technology that can enable a zero carbon footprint when used with renewable resources. Electrolysis is compatible with large-scale central production plants as well as smaller scale distributed systems, and represents an important part of the EERE portfolio of near-to mid-term hydrogen production pathways. The high cost of electrolyzer-produced hydrogen remains an issue, though; to address this, key R&D efforts are underway to improve cell and stack performance while reducing capital and operational costs. Leaders in these research efforts, Monjid Hamdan of GinerElectrochemical Systems and Kathy Ayers of Proton Onsite will discuss recent progress, as well as future scenarios for renewable hydrogen production by PEM electrolysis.
