Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Hydrogen is a highly promising energy carrier, offering advantages of a clean and environmentally friendly fuel with a high energy density per mass and without releasing pollutants to the environment through the exhaust gas. Especially when used in fuel cells, hydrogen is a very efficient energy carrier and could help solving some of the world's energy challenges. Fuel cells can directly convert chemically stored energy to electrical and thermal energy by electrochemically oxidizing fuels, ideally hydrogen. This special issue will combine experimental and numerical publications on various aspects of a future hydrogen economy and fuel cells, namely studies and reviews on hydrogen generation, hydrogen storage, and hydrogen utilization on the one hand side and low-, intermediate- and high-temperature fuel cells on the other hand. All energy sources for hydrogen generation, all types of applications such as stationary, portable, or automotive, and all types of fuel cells are of interest for this special issue.
