Generating Hydrogen for Energy Storage

An increase in renewable energy production has fueled interest in proton-exchange membrane water electrolysis as a viable solution to generate hydrogen to store power. To optimize and improve protonexchange membrane (PEM) cells, a national project called ENHIGMA uses ANSYS Fluent as the fundamental tool to simulate the flow field in these cells. The results from the simulations will help the future manufacture of more cost-competitive, efficient and durable PEM electrolyzers.
