Recent Progress in Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell

With the exacerbated global energy consumption and environmental concerns, fuel cell technology is increasingly attracting attention as one of the most promising alternatives, proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell can directly convert the chemical energy of hydrogen and oxygen in air into electricity with high efficiency and power density, and zero emissions at the point of use. In the past decades, PEM fuel cell has been developed substantially and commercial deployment is well underway, especially in automotive applications. However, technical challenges remain for the cost, durability and power density of PEM fuel cell. Therefore, this Special Issue aims to highlight the recent progress in the development of PEM fuel cell in terms of advanced designs, materials, control strategies and fundamental understandings, and to provide directions for the future high-performance PEM fuel cell. State-of-the-art and original contributions involving experimental and numerical studies, and novel and emerging technologies related to PEM fuel cell are highly encouraged.


The specific topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Catalyst for PEM fuel cell
  • Proton exchange membrane
  • Membrane electrode assembly (MEA)
  • Bipolar plate
  • PEM fuel cell stack and auxiliary components
  • Advanced control strategy for PEM fuel cell
  • Advanced water and heat management for PEM fuel cell
  • advanced physical or data-driven modeling approach related to PEM fuel cell
  • advanced experimental technique and uncertainty analysis related to PEM fuel cell
