UC Merced's TEEL and the Hydrogen Economy

7/5/2018; 8 minutes

Global warming due to CO2 emissions from fossil fuels remains an urgent issue that must be addressed. With the largest share of energy-related CO2 emissions in the US from coming transportation, it is critical to replace fossil fuels for powering vehicles. A team of researchers from UC Merced is developing hydrogen and fuel cell technologies for powering vehicles at TEEL, the Thermal and Electrochemical Energy Laboratory. Working on novel catalyst synthesis, membrane electrode assembly integration, multiphysics simulation, cell design and diagnostics and system integration, the goal of TEEL is to enable hydrogen and fuel cell technologies to achieve sustainable energy use in the future.
