Water electrolysis appears to be as one the foremost technologies for a sustainable production of hydrogen from renewable energy to feed next generation fuel cell vehicles. This technology is characterized by the ability to rapidly follow the intermittent production of renewable energy and, thus, can provide efficient energy storage and grid-balancing service in power-to-gas processes. These characteristics will become very important in the next future because of the increasing impact of renewable sources on the grid and the differences in supply and demand for energy generation and consumption. Accordingly, it is important to get a better understanding of the reaction process and performance limiting phenomena in membraneelectrode assemblies which are the core part of a PEM electrolysis system.
