Fuel Cell Systems

Fuel Cell converts chemical energy directly to electricity, which can be applied for transportation, stationary, and portable applications. The technology decreases our dependence on oil, reduces carbon emissions, and enables clean, reliable power generation. The Energy Center is facilitating a campus wide research community to position Purdue to address this challenge. Purdue’s capabilities include: (1) catalyst and electrode, (2) polymer and membrane, (3) processing and integration, (4) testing and diagnostics, and (5) modeling.
